PRAY FOR TORONTO



For the victims of the terrorist attack today in Toronto - the dead and the injured -  their families and friends, please pray. For those who died, may they  have died in the Grace of God.  May those who survive draw closer, or come to Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

ETERNAL REST GRANT UNTO THEM O LORD, AND MAY PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM
MAY THEY REST IN PEACE. 

MAY THE SOULS OF THE FAITHFULLY DEPARTED
REST IN PEACE. 

 + AMEN +

'Vivos voco, mortuos plango...
I summon the living, I mourn the dead ...'

These are the church bells, which toll out for those in Toronto who were so cruelly taken from the world. They toll for those who grieve.

We pray for the souls of those who died in this atrocity.
We pray for those who were injured.
We pray for the families and friends of the victims.

And we pray for troubled Toronto, which is admired throughout the world for its civility, its peacefulness, its beauty, its care for children and the elderly, and its kindness to strangers from all lands.

Saint Joseph, Patron Saint of Canada, who died in the arms of Jesus and Mary, pray for Canada in these times of bitterness and strife.
We ask for the prayerful intercession of Canada's other saints.

Saint Jean de Brebeuf S.J. canonized by Pope Pius XI pray for Canada.
Saint Katerei Tekakwitha canonized by Pope Benedict XVI pray for Canada.
Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys canonized by Pope John Paul II pray for Canada.
Saint Marguerite d'Youville canonized by Pope John Paul II pray for Canada.
Saint Marie de l'Incarnation canonized by Pope Francis pray for Canada.

Lord Jesus Christ, You wept over Jerusalem, even for all those who would reject You.
You are with us now, yea even until the consummation of the world.

A city of serial killers and mass murderers; a town without pity. What will you get when a society deprives the family of its ability to raise saints?

Dear friends, I share your sorrow in this tragedy to hit the city of Toronto. I am praying for the victims, their families, and the man who harmed them, and I am encouraging others to pray for Toronto as well. It seems the whole world has gone mad with these sorrowful events in the streets of London, European airports, concerts in Las Vegas and Paris, magazine offices in France,and even in peaceful Vienna, near where I am living, we have had raids on apartments to prevent these kinds of attacks from happening. Evil is limited. May the Mother of Jesus, the Woman Clothed with the Sun in Rev. 12 and the Woman fighting with her Seed in Gen. 3:15, crush the head of the serpent, that is all resistance to God, in Toronto and the rest of the world. God bless Canada. God bless Toronto. Susan Fox www.christsfaithfulwitness.com
