We pray to you O Lord for all who died in the terror of September 2001 and for those others whom we remember today, for those who believed in Your resurrection and those who knew not Your promise of eternal life, we trust that they have been found by You and are at rest in Your holy habitation.
We pray to you O Lord for our leaders, that they be vigilant and prudent in their actions os that we will not have to face another 9-11.
Make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love.
Where there is injury, let us sow pardon.
Where there is discord, let us sow union.
Where there is doubt, let us sow faith.
Where there is despair, let us sow hope.
Where there is darkness, let us sow light.
Where there is sadness, let us sow joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are reborn to eternal life. AMEN.
