PRAYERS FOR BOSTON MARATHON EXPLOSION
If We Choose To Pray
Rabbi Wendi Geffen
Let's pray for the hundreds of people who cling to life, whose limbs were lost, whose lives are shattered. Let's pray for the helpers who run toward chaos instead of away from it.
Good Friday On Boylston Street
Rev. James Martin, S.J.
Author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
It may be difficult to see now, as it was impossible for the disciples on Good Friday to see, but the God who has suffered is ready to help us, and always holding out the promise of something new, something that will help us move beyond the blood and tears.
Don't Ask The Crocus (A Lament For Boston)
Rachel G. Hackenberg
Pastor and author
Don't ask the crocus, "Where is God?" / as though the crocus can respond to / our cries echoing over the flower beds. / The purple blooms have done their best / to disguise the traces of our bitter violence; / their job is not to soothe our seething conscience.
