In Remembrance

We pray for the souls of all our belowed dead, especially those who have lost their lives in California as a result of violence. 

Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father's knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father." - Matthew 10:28-33

Prayer for Victims:

Dear Lord, We pray for victims of violence and their families, that they may experience our love and support and find comfort in your compassion and in the promise of eternal life. We also hold in prayer all of the times that we have experienced harm, in any form. Grant us the courage to seek out restorative encounters to bring about your vision of healing and unity that we, your people, may no longer be divided by the hurt we cause one another in our brokenness. Help us practice forgiveness in the small things, so we may embody Your spirit of a more restorative justice in the big things. Amen 
(Caitlin Morneau, Director of Restorative Justice, Catholic Mobilizing Network)
