I've been away from my computer today, and didn't even hear about the bombing at the Boston Marathon until my sister mentioned it on the phone this afternoon. Like many if not most of my readers, I'm praying for the victims and their families tonight, that God will grant eternal rest to the deceased and comfort and healing to those who loved them.
And for all of us:
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
