  • When tragedy through violence has entered my life, I found The Prayer to St. Michael very appropriate and healing for me.

  • God of merciful love,
    Help these families who are victims of murder
    To accept the reality of such senseless acts of violence
    Without, at the same time,
    Succumbing to the despair of so great a loss.
    May this violence become for them, instead,
    A steppingstone toward greater union with you.
    Teach them the forgiveness that was exemplified
    By Jesus as he said,
    “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
    And through his redemptive love,
    Show your mercy to the perpetrators of these crimes.
    Fill the emptiness of their victim hearts
    With the fire of your divine love
    So as to transform their losses
    Into a healing power
    For themselves and for our world.
