As we worship this weekend at Sacred Heart Catholic Church (Norfolk, Virginia, Princess Ann Road at Upper Stockley Gardens) may we offer our prayers for the people of France, wounded in mind, body, and spirit by the terrible attack of Friday, November 13 in Paris.

The Vatican has said,  “At the Vatican we are following the terrible news from Paris. We are shocked by this new manifestation of maddening terrorist violence and hatred which we condemn in the most radical way, together with the pope and all those who love peace. We pray for the victims and the wounded, and for all the French people. This is an attack on the peace of all mankind which requires a decisive and supportive response by all of us to counter the spread of homicidal hatred in all of its forms.”

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense 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 for the ruin of souls. Amen.
