Twenty-Four

Never forget.

 

Never forget.

 

9/11 is a defining moment for a generation and so we commemorate it today. 

 

On your left, America Magazine’s Father James Martin offers a video pilgrimage of New York’s Ground Zero. (Of course, Ground Zero is also found at the Pentagon, in Southwest Pennsylvania, and within our cultural psyche.)

 

Below right, filmmaker Andrew Jenks produced a short film for MTV in which a cross-section of the country’s millennial generation give their personal accounts of that historic day: where they were, who they were with and how 9/11 has impacted their lives.

 

Our prayer today is for the Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time which is also Patriot_Day:

 

How long, O Lord, will it take to forgive my brother? Seven years? Seven decades? Seventy times seven years?

 

We are the Lord’s, yet, do we desire to set the pattern of our relationships to reflect our relationship with our Creator? Do we remember the Most High’s covenant of love and aspire for something more – even mercy?

 

Redeem us, Lord, from destruction – in our lives, in our relationships, in our world.  Lord, help us to forgive and place all transgressions away as far as the east is from the west. Put away our transgressions that separate us from You.

 

We will never forget Your mercy and love.
