9-11: One Year Later

9-11: One Year Later




The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I 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 born to eternal life.
Amen.

In memory of those who lost their lives in the terrible tragedy of the terrorist attacks one year ago today, in honor of the survivors and family members of the victims, and in honor of our nation and its will to carry on.
