Newtown, CT Victims and Their Families

Newtown, CT - Let us remember in prayer the 26 students and 6 adults who died at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, CT after a random shooting on Friday. May the Lord grant them eternal life and bless their families and community with His peace, which surpasses all understanding. May their suffering be used for good so this horrific event never happens again.

Lord, help all those involved in unbearable suffering this day find comfort in your last words on the cross: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do!" Help us to be agents of intervention for all tormented and estranged souls, who might commit such a crime against love and compassion. May they get help before they act on their irrational thoughts and plans for destruction.

"For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world." Please pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for all those who have died or are suffering in any way this day. Make a difference, be loving, kind and good in the face of life-threatening thoughts, words and deeds so that good may conquer evil before it is too late. In God all things are possible.

Humanitarian Relief in the Congo

WASHINGTON D.C. - Leaders of the Catholic Church in Africa are calling for humanitarian aid and peace efforts in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo after rebel forces captured a major city.

In light of "the mission of Christian charity and solidarity," the African bishops called on various charitable organizations to renew and strengthen their efforts to ease "the suffering afflicting these brothers and sisters."

Meeting in the Congolese capital of Kinshasa to discuss nonprofit work in the region, bishops from 34 African nations issued a Nov. 22 statement condemning the recent violence in the city of Goma and calling for an international response.

Fighting between a rebel group known as M23 and the Congolese army intensified when the rebels seized the major eastern city of Goma, home to about one million people, on Nov. 20.

The violent clash has resulted in huge numbers of people being displaced from their homes and left without food, water or shelter.

The bishops expressed solidarity and concern for the Congolese people, along with shock and outrage at the armed violence. They warned that the continuing clashes are causing a major humanitarian crisis that demands immediate attention.

The prelates observed that among the victims of the war are the thousands of men, women and children who have been displaced and abandoned in Goma and the surrounding areas.

"They are exposed to the bad weather, hunger, rape and all kinds of abuses, including recruiting of children into the army," the Church leaders said. "This constitutes an offence to their dignity as human beings and children of God."

Tens of thousands of people are estimated to have fled their homes and relief camps in Congo as the violence escalated. Aid groups in the area are working to provide for the essential needs of these people.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, please pray for all those who are suffering and forgotten this day, especially those in the Congo, who are misplaced, homeless and starving. Bless them with their basic human rights such as food, clothing and shelter and basic respect for their human dignity, while peace and diplomatic solutions may be found.

O Lady of the loss and suffering remember the poor and dying this day and pray for our Lord's healing peace in war-torn countries. Mary Our Immaculate Mother, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
