Please pray for the good people of Boston


As the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bomber continues, all of Boston  is in lockdown.  Here at Saint John's Seminary we are all safe and the seminarians are praying for the safety of all involved.  Please be one with us in prayer. 



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. Amen.

ROMAN MISSAL,
PRAYER IN TIME OF WAR OR CIVIL DISTURBANCE
