Remembering our loved ones on 9/11
Please remember in prayer those who perished on September 11, 2001. Pray with us for the souls of the departed as well as the thousands of surviving friends and families left to face this tremendous loss.
On September 11th, loved ones of those who died will travel to the Shrine of St. Joseph in Stirling, New Jersey, where they will gather at the Tower of Remembrance. Here they will find comfort in a special Mass and memorial celebration dedicated to the memory of all those lost.
This prayer is offered with the hope that it may provide comfort to all who read it.
Those Affected by Terrorism
Oh, most gracious and loving God, welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism. Comfort their families and all who grieve for them, and help us in our fear and uncertainty. Bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love. Strengthen all those who work for peace, and may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
