So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Manchester. A prayer.

May those victims who perished in the bombing be granted a merciful judgement by God. May they be welcomed into His loving Presence. May they rest in peace. May their families and friends receive the peace only You, Lord Jesus, can give. May they find Your consoling love among the acts of kindness and compassion offered them by their families and friends. Grant to the survivors the grace to persevere and the grace to forgive those responsible for the attack. Grant to the injured healing of mind and body.

Holy Spirit, grant wisdom and knowledge to the security officers who defend the innocent. May societies which do not see the threat to the safety and well being of their citizens be freed of their ignorance and act accordingly to protect the common good.

Almighty God, deliver us from wicked and evil men, men whose religion is death. Men whose actions are inspired by a false prophet.

Saint Michael, Archangel, and holy angels of God, thrust down to hell Satan and confuse his earthly minions so they will be apprehended before they can enact their evil plans.

In Jesus' Name. Amen.
