O God, merciful and strong,
who crush wars and cast down the proud,
be pleased to banish violence swiftly from our midst
and to wipe away all tears,
so that we may all truly deserve to be called your children.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Please come to join the parish at Mass tomorrow evening, Wednesday 24th May at 7pm, as we pray for those who have been killed and hurt in the atrocity in Manchester, and for those who do such evil.
