O Lord, maker of all things, master of the universe: send your Holy Spirit to our brothers and sisters in France this day. May they be comforted and find peace in the midst of such chaos.
May the light of your redeeming love through Jesus Christ, our Lord, shine brightly upon the darkness in which they find themselves.
Allow your Church to be your mouthpiece, to give words of solace; and may we be your body, that those who mourn may find shelter in our bosom.
For those who have died, we ask that you have mercy upon them, and grant them entrance into your eternal kingdom, according to their faith and your will.
We cry out to you O Lord, and ask that you forgive those who have perpetrated this evil; for they did not know the truth of their actions.
Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus, that evil may be chained, and righteousness reign forevermore.
