Blessed Are They Who Mourn…

Artist: Brian Neimann

for they will be comforted.

As we recall the tragic events of this day, the road less taken of the Beatitudes always challenges us.

 

“God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world, peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace
among the nations of the earth.

Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope, and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all.”

-Pope Benedict XVI, Ground Zero visit, April 2008
