We Will Never Forget

Please join me in prayer:

"Dear Father Almighty,

As we mourn for all the souls who died on September 11th, many of whom woke up that morning with no prayer or thought of You on their hearts, we ask You to extend the full portion of Your Mercy on their souls.

We also beg of you to continue to send the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, into the lives of their surviving relatives and friends. You, Father, and You alone, have the power to bring good out of evil. We humbly implore you to guide the hands, feet, and minds of all rescue workers and police and fire workers who responded after the attack, and who will respond in the days ahead to whatever challenges confront them. Protect them. Enlighten them. Help them save lives.We ask, too, Almighty One, that You extend a blanket of divine protection on the United States at this critical time.

Guide our leaders, especially President Bush, and all sovereign nations who are our friends, and place them under the special mantle of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady, who is the patroness of our country. We ask all of this in the Holy Name that is Above All Other Names in Power and Glory and Love and Mercy; in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our brother, and Our Savior.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, pray for us. Saint Katharine Drexel and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us. Saint Thomas More, Patron of Politicians, pray for us. Saint Joseph, Patron Saint of Canada, pray for us. Immaculate Mary, Patroness of the United States, pray for us. Jesus Christ, King of Kings, we adore you! Amen.
