Victims of the Madrid Rail Bombing
over 180 dead

We commend the victims of this tragedy to God as they journey beyond our sight. May the design of God's love shine on the waste of our wraths and our sorrows.

God of all consolation,
in this time of fear
of darkness and death
we bring you our grief
and ask for courage to bear it.
We bring you our thank
for all you give us, in those we love.
We bring you our prayers for peace.
God our creator and our end,
give us the courage to welcome
that unimaginable moment awaiting us all;
give us trust and confidence;
and at the last give us peace.

May the most merciful Savior comfort the families of those who died and may the souls of those who died enter the peace of the Heavenly Kingdon. Please Sweetest Jesus, let there be peace in this world, show us how to love rather than hate. Ann

Dear Lord, please keep the victims in Your everlasting care. Please help their families as they mourn--that they may draw close to You.

May Allah will that the survivors of these attrocities be cared for and comforted. May Allah will that the innocent victims who have lost their lives be received into Paradise to reside therein for eternity. May Allah have mercy on us all. Ameen.

Lord, may I echo St. Francis in my prayers? Where there is hate, let us sow love. Help us, O Lord, to bring peace to the world by first bringing peace to ourselves. Please bring comfort and peace to the families of those who suffered this tragedy, and bring peace and unhardened hearts to those who perpetrated it.

I ask you this through your Son, the Prince of Peace, who died without complaint for all, and rose that we may have eternal life in Him.

3/12/2004 09:21

May those who have been affected by this horrifying act be given solace and comfort in Spirit. May those who were lost be held in the hands of that Great One. May those who have committed this act learn to See. This is not the way.

Blessed Great Spirit, I ask this thing. May it be.

3/12/2004 11:49

Father, bring your eternal comfort to those who lost loved ones in this tragedy and horror. Be with them and bless them. I lift up the souls who were lost and injured to You, bring healing and comfort to those still with us and welcome those who are no longer with us here into Your kingdom. Send Your Spirit to us all that we may love others as You love us. Let Your will be done.

3/12/2004 12:31

Most benovolent creator, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen

Dearest Father-Mother God,
I am heartsick at yet another horrendous act and loss of innocent lives. Please grant these precious souls your peace, comfort their grieving families, bring the perpetrators to their senses. Nothing, no grievance real or imagined, justifies this. Help us learn peace. Amen.

Oh Glorious Saint Teresa of Avila, model of fidelity to vows, you gladly carried a heavy cross following in the steps of Christ who chose to be crucified for us. Grant to your patron people of the Catholic Kingdom of Espaņa relief from their grant pains. Now and forever, throughout all troubles of terrorism, disunity, and ill will.

3/12/2004 16:31

My prayers go out to the people who are responsible for this attack, and I will pray to find the strength to forgive you. As C.S. Lewis put it, "To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you."

may the Lord bless thee and keep thee;
may the Lord shine His countenance upon thee and give thee peace

It is my hope that these poor, innocent victims may find comfort in the next life, and that the criminals behind these acts will rid their hearts of hate.

3/12/2004 22:32

Lord Please Be With The Family Of These Innocent Victims, Lord Please Give Them The Strength In Their Time Of Need Please Comfort Them And Cradle These Victims In Your Arms.

May Our Lord God Omnipotent Bless the victims who perished in the March 11 bombings. May He also Bless the families and the injured.
May Peace prevail in our turmoiled World.
May the Islamic militants realize that we all believe and honor One GOD Who does not condone violence in His Name but that rather He Taught through the Prophets and still Teaches us Love and Brotherhood.
May the Imams teach the true meaning of the Qu-Ran. That whoever kills in the Name of God will not go to Paradise but rather will wind up in hell.
May The Lord we call GOD, Jehovah, Allah, etc. Shed and Enlighten these poor souls who live in darkness.

May the Lady and Lord bless and consol the families and friends in their time of loss. May comfort and love be poured upon them.
For those whose lives were lost, may the God uphold them on their journey where their souls may find their rest and may the Goddess hold and comfort them and ease their sorrow as a mother who comforts her child.
Blessings to those in loss, So mote it be!

Were the Madrid attacks carried out by Basque "militants" protesting the illegal occupation of their country?

Or was it Al Qaeda "militants" protesting the Spanish invasion of Iraq?

Were they militants? terrorists? freedom fighters?

I'm just trying to get the hang of the lingo.
