Prayer for September 11, Patriot Day
Today, Sept. 11, as we observe Patriot Day to mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. in 2001 let us pray:
O Lord God, our heavenly Father, regard, we pray, with your divine pity, the pains of all your children. As we remember the horrifying events of Sept. 11, 2001, hold us in the shelter of your enduring love. Grant that the passion of our Lord and his infinite love may make fruitful for good the tribulations of the innocent, the sufferings of the rescuers and the sorrows of the bereaved. We ask this in the name of your son and our brother, who suffered and died for the sake of all people. Amen.
