Today is the 70th anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. 2402 Americans were killed, 1282 injured.
Let us pray for those who perished and those who continue to be burdened with the tragedy. May God be merciful and loving.
Show us, Lord, the immense power of your goodness, that, as we weep for our brothers and sisters taken from us by a sudden death, we may be confident that they have passed over into your eternal company.
