"A day that will live in infamy..."
On this day of tragic remembrance, let us recommit ourselves to continuing to live peace and make peace in the world around us.
In the words of St. Francis, as set to music by the Saint Louis Jesuits, let us pray: "Lord, make me a means of Your peace."
Let us work to create and sustain peace in
... our selves,
... our families and communities,
... our parishes and towns/cities,
... our countries,
... and our world.
Let us also work to make peace with the environment and all creation which, as the the handiwork of the One Creator God, is sacred.
And to this, let the people of God say "Amen!"
