You, O God, are not "in control" of this world,
but you are in it and "in charge" of its destiny.
Help all of us to search, in truth,
for the "dark and tangled roots of terrorism," that they may be healed.
Turn our fears into courage and trust and peace building.
Enable our hearts to love our enemies and to pray for them.
May we always realize that our greatest enemy is within.
Sustain us in the hope that love is stronger than hate or death.
Give us a vision of "global" security, abundance and freedom for all. Amen.
The Carmelites of Indianapolis
