Prayer of solidarity

2017-06-05 07:03


Surrounded by woodland and birdsong, with the lake mirror-smooth in the early morning sunshine, it is hard to believe that, less than a one hour drive away at London Bridge, people’s lives have changed for ever as a result of a second terror attack in less than two weeks.

The thoughts and prayers of everybody associated with Redemptorist Publications are in solidarity with everybody associated with last night’s tragedy.

May those who have died enjoy eternal life and peace; those who are injured and traumatised find healing; their families, friends and associates find courage, comfort and help and may the members of the emergency services receive all the support and insight that they need.

Holy Spirit of Peace, as we celebrate the feast of Pentecost and remember the new life and hope you brought to Jesus’ terrified followers, help people across our world to put an end to the senseless violence and bloodshed of terrorism. Holy Spirit, help us all to come to terms with this new tragedy.
