~prayers for the victims of violence in Arizona~

Kyrie Eleison

Christe Eleison

Kyrie Eleison

Lord have mercy upon us.

Christ have mercy upon us.

Lord have mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us Lord, but especially we pray for Gabrielle who lives, but yet barely. Send thou thy most Powerful Hand to touch her body that it may be restored to fullness and healed from all distress. In peace we pray to the Lord saying,

Lord have mercy.

We pray also for the repose of the souls of John, a faithful catholic of frequent communion and for the unknown child, both of whom were killed.

+may they rest in peace + may light perpetual shine ever upon them +

We pray also for the many others injured by this senseless act of violence. FOr all the families and those others touched by this brutal act of inhumanity.

In peace we pray to you saying,

Lord have mercy.

Finally Lord, we pray for Jared. Despite whose hatred and very wickedness we shall return neither hatred nor vengeance upon him, but shall love him even as Christ hath taught us to love our enemies. We pray for him and other young people who are considering acts of violence because of their own fears,  angers or desperations. May they come to light and love and find true redemption in the ways of that which is eternal.

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

Áve María, grátia pléna, Dóminus técum. Benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus frúctus véntris túi, Iésus.

Sáncta María, Máter Déi, óra pro nóbis peccatóribus, nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae. Ámen.
