911 Tragedy is Remembered at Pope's Mass


Today we remember all those who perished in the September 11 terrorist attack five years ago. Let us pray for the repose of their souls and for the families they left behind. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Sep. 11 ( - Pope Benedict XVI and the faithful of Bavaria joined in prayer for the victims of terrorism on September 11, recalling particularly the attack on New York five years earlier.

As the Pope celebrated Mass at the Marian shrine in Altötting, one of the prayers of intercession referred directly to the somber anniversary: "Five years after the attacks on New York, we pray for the victims, and for peace in the entire world."

The previous day, when the Pope celebrated Mass in a fairground in Munich, one of the prayers of the faithful had sounded a similar theme, with a petition for the victims of warfare, terror, and violence, and for the political leaders seeking to provide security and justice for their peoples.
