In Prayer for the UT Campus

This morning an armed gunman fired an AK-47 and turned the gun on himself.  As details are still emerging, please pray for the campus, the family of the gunman, and all faculty, employees and students. Keep updated via the The Statesman.

Lord, make us instruments of Your peace; where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.  O Divine Master, grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.  In the name of the Father,  son and Holy Spirit.  Amen. –  St. Francis of Assisi

May the Lord of peace himself give us peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of us. (2 Thess 3:16)
