On this the 6th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, we remember all those who died or were injured that day.
O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day our brothers and sisters who died on September 11, 2001. We thank you for giving them to us, their family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on our earthly pilgrimage. In your boundless compassion, console us who mourn. Give us faith to see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with those who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
