Prayer to end Genocide
O Lord, we cry to you, with deep pain in our hearts and souls.
Our hearts ache, because of genocide caused by
the lust for power,
cruel hatred for others,
because of their race, religion or physical differences.
God of all, the heavens weep, the winds whisper
through this great world you have created.
We hear and feel the weeping in our own souls.
Open our eyes and cleanse our souls
that we may always remember the awful injustices.
How long, O God, will we look with empty souls and eyes, how long?
The answer, “Until you feel my pain for all my children.”
We cry in shame. Forgive us Lord.

A Prayer for Those Killed and Injured in the Syrian Gas Attack Oh, Lord, we pray for the repose of the souls of those recently killed in Syria. They were innocents, caught up in a war that seems to have no end. We pray also for those injured, that they may heal and be well. The use of chemical weapons is a war crime. We pray that all involved may be able to come together and find a way to a just peace that will spare the lives of others who may become victims. by Dr. Eugene Fisher Profiles in Catholicism
President of U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholics Across the U.S. Join in Praying for Victims of the Latest Terror Attack in London "Our solidarity in Christian hope and commitment to peace is a bond that cannot be broken."
WASHINGTON—Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, of Galveston-Houston, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued the following statement following last night's terror attack which has left seven people dead and at least 48 injured. This is the third terrorist attack on British soil in as many months. Cardinal DiNardo's full statement follows: "The Vigil of Pentecost had barely begun when the world was burdened yet again, this time by the sinister attacks on innocent men and women in the heart of London. In such tragic hours we implore the Holy Spirit to pour out His gift of comfort on those who grieve the loss of loved ones and on the dozens who were so tragically injured in this horrible attack. At the same time, we see in the courage of the first responders the true and courageous spirit of our brothers and sisters, the people of Great Britain. May God grant strength, wisdom and protection to the men and women who safeguard our families and may He convert the hearts of all who follow the path of evil extremism. Our solidarity in Christian hope and commitment to peace is a bond that cannot be broken. Together with my brother bishops and with Catholics throughout the United States, we join the prayerful intercession made already by Pope Francis: 'May the Holy Spirit grant peace to the whole world. May He heal the wounds of war and of terrorism, which even this [Saturday] night, in London, struck innocent civilians: let us pray for the victims and their families.'"w our hope when we feel helpless .
