This will be brief.
France is in my mind with a heavy heart tonight.
Liberté, égalité, fraternité
My prayers are with those suffering tonight, with the first responders, and the future/current caregivers of those effected in the atrocities.
Hail Holy Queen,
Mother of Mercy,
our life our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us
and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
