God the Father who art in heaven,
I was just 17 when I assisted on TV to the very terrible event of 9/11/2001, but I can remember the Twin Towers falling, the explosions, the flames; in my eyes there's still the image of those men, women and children: their terror, sorrow, mournings and disorientation have touched my heart even if that happened on the other side of the world. Please, Father, I pray and ask you to spair such a terrible tragedy to those of this world, to forgive the sins of those who died, and also to convert to your beloved Son the hearts of those who planned such an evil attack. I'd especially like to remember those firemen who intervened at Ground Zero: may those who died to save other people be remembered and glorified as martyrs and Good Samaritans, and those heroes who survived be healed by the spiritual injuries of such a terrible moment. Please, Most Holy Trinity, Omnipotent God, through the intercession of the Holy Theotokos, Lady of Peace, have mercy on us, bring Love on our Earth and shield the World from the menace of terrorism, because even such a powerful instrument of Satan cannot prevail against Your invincible hand.
