Remembering 9/11

I really can’t say it any better than this…

O God of love, compassion, and healing. We ask you in your goodness to give eternal light and peace to all who died here the heroic first-responders: our fire fighters, police officers, emergency service workers, and Port Authority personnel, along with all the innocent men and women who were victims of this tragedy simply because their work or service brought them here on September 11, 2001. Pope Benedict XI, Prayer at Ground Zero, New York, April 20, 2008
