Prayer at the Flagpole, September 11, 2019

WE WILL NEVER FORGET
Mary most blessed,
with a mother’s heart
you love and care for all children of Earth
as your own.

On this day of remembrance,
give peace of heart to those who carry the memories
of the sights and sounds of September 11, 2001.

Comfort those who continue to grieve the losses
of family members, coworkers, rescue workers,
and daily life as they knew it then.

In this time of unrest in the world,
gather your children in a mother’s embrace,
and protect us from all that would do us harm.

May your Son, the Prince of Peace,
guide all world leaders to make decisions
that will ensure the safety and good
of the people they serve
and the world community.

May He continue to guide our minds,
our hearts, and our feet
that our decisions, our actions, and our words
give witness to his holy peace.

Holy Mary, pray for us.
Comfort of those who mourn, pray for us.
Dearest of mothers, pray for us.
Queen of peace, pray for us.
Amen.

Bishop Robert Barron speaks on the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church the book Letter to a Suffering Church.

From Bishop Barron’s Preface;

Why stay Catholic with so much Scandal?  I have written this book for my fellow Catholics who feel, understandably, demoralized, scandalized, angry beyond words and ready to quit.  What I urge my brothers and sisters in the Church to do is stay and fight – and to do so on behalf of themselves and their families, but especially on behalf of those who have suffered so grievously at the hands of wicked men.

Copies are available in the entrances of the church.
