A Prayer for Two Police Officers Shot in California

God of all peoples and all places, We know that life is full of risks. Getting out of bed is a risk. Walking across the street is a risk. Loving others as you love us is a risk. With COVID-19, even breathing has become a risk. Some of us have jobs or professions that put us at greater risk. That includes those in law enforcement. Lord, we decry the senseless attack on two Los Angeles County deputies, A man and a woman sitting in their patrol car near a subway station. We pray for their full recovery. We also pray for our nation and for our world. While violence may seem like an appropriate outlet for our anger, A justified response to oppression, Your gift to us is “peace”. You asked us to learn to forgive one another, As you have forgiven us. by Father Joseph Chamblain, O.S.M. Profiles in Catholicism


Prayer for all police and firefighters with Covid-19 and who have died from Covid-19

Good and Gracious God,

You place each one of us in your loving embrace. We want to live this journey with You, Lord. Our firefighters: Edward Singleton and Mario Araujo have given their skills to you dear Lord and now rest with you.  Help all those left behind to remember the joy and gift you were to them. Our police officers: Marco DiGranco, Joseph Cappello, and Clifford Martin have given You their best.  They now, too, rest in your loving arms. All of us Lord, are grateful for the skills that they brought in service to You and in love of us.  The sacrifice is unbridled and unbelievable. They took part in all that is difficult about the pandemic. The messiness, the ugliness and the horror of this disease was something all the firefighters and police officers were willing to do for us.  Help us to be grateful to them and to all who are working in this field. We ask you this through Christ our Lord, in union with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
