Brothers all,

It has just been brought to my attention that SK Kelly and Liz Chaoine had family that were in the church in San Antonio last weekend; where the gunman attacked and killed members. I have been informed the woman who was 8 mos. pregnant and 3 of the children killed were the family of Liz's sister; the children being her sister's grandchildren. Kelly and Liz are at this time in San Antonio with the family.  Please keep the Chanoine family and their relatives in your prayers, in this, their time of need.

Lord, I come to You wounded and in pain; violence has been done to my community. We are in need of healing; of Your gentle touch, Your tender voice and compassionate heart.  Help us to transform pain into new life.  Give us the strength and courage to live life vigorously again and to not be afraid of stranger or friend. Turn our despair into hope, our hate into love and our anger into joy.  Let us seek to be reconciled with those who have caused harm. Help us to forgive, as You forgave. Help us to love our enemies and pray for those who have persecuted us. Bring justice and peace to the lives of those who have done us harm. Let them see Your face and feel the warmth of Your love so that they may never injure another.

Lord we pray for Your mercy and compassion. We live in troubled times, and the answers to our problems are not simple or easy. Send Your Spirit upon us to strengthen our resolve to root out the violence, hate, and fear in our lives. Replace it with Your forbearance and love. Create in us hearts of courage, grace us with the ability to stand against the violence of our day: the violence in ourselves, our homes, streets and communities. In your name we pray, Amen.
