Thanks to Rick for posting Pope Benedict's prayer during his visit to Ground Zero. I'm drawn particularly to the request for wisdom and courage to work for a world of peace. In my Creo en Dios! post this morning (which you can read in its entirety here), I quote Martin Luther King, Jr.'s admonition that "returning violence for violence multiplies violence" and that only love can drive out hate. King urged that we “must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."
On this day on which so many of us still mourn the loss of loved ones, let us pray that we may find ways to spread Christ's love to the hearts of all.
