“A thousand years in your eyes are merely a day gone by, before a watch passes in the night, you wash them away; they sleep, and in the morning they sprout again like an herb.” Psalm 90:4-5

Some pain doesn’t go away.

On the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the pain for many remains unbearable. Our thoughts are with those still grieving and suffering as we offer prayers for both the living and the dead.

The best way to honor the lives lost on September 11 is by living our faith with a total commitment to peace. Let healing be the gift you give to someone in your life. Practice forgiveness. Be the person of faith who changes the way someone you know experiences the Gospel. Pray the Our Father with all your heart, especially the words, “… forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Be a peacemaker, as Jesus asked, and you will live-out what it means to be a child of God.

Our Maryknoll family remembers September 11 with you and all people of good will. Thank you for praying with us and living God’s mission spirit with devotion. May peace begin anew today in each of us. By our example, let God’s peace reign.


Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all comfort, deal graciously, we pray, with those who mourn, that casting every care on You, they may know the consolation of Your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
