Loving God, bless all who are frightened, angry, or sorrowing this night.  Bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake.

The French, our brothers in freedom, have joined us as victims of mass terrorist tragedy.  May the Lord bless and keep the souls of the murdered, and console and succor their families.  Prayers also for Paris; may the city of llight shine all the brighter.  Vive la France!

Once again, early in  his tenure, Curry consoles the heartbroken for the Prince of Peace. Just about 15 months after his consecration, on the evening of September 11, 2001, then NC Bishop Curry was making a scheduled visit to St. Philip's Durham. I would wager to say that the service was better attended than might ordinarily have been the case for a Tuesday night confirmation service, our charismatic bishop notwithstanding. To his credit and wisdom, the bishop's sermon stayed true to confirmation, while acknowledging the horrors of the day, but as he always does, Curry put the focus on love. Always love.

Thank you, Bishop Curry, for  your call for prayer but for me I cannot separate prayer for the lost lives in Paris from what Ussama Makdisi calls in the title of his book, Faith Misplaced : the broken promises of U.S.-Arab relations : 1820-2001 (Public Affairs, 2010), including the Sykes-Pirot agreement of 1916 and the Balfour Declaration which the U.S. Congress officially endorsed in 1922.

We look to our religious leaders for guidance. Thank you for what you do. However calling this event anythinf other than an ACT of terrorism is sad and wrong. Take a stand. You break my heart as  a 50 year Episcopalian

Thank you for prayers. France will emerge the victors in the war against terror. Their unity will be enhanced by our prayers.

Thank you Bishop Curry.  Praying for the French and all humanity is so important.  We need more such prayers for all people.  Lebanon and the Lebanese suffered a terrible double bombing the day before.  And let us not forget all the people in Iraq, Yemen, Palestine, Syria and Afghanistan.  Many of those die from our drones and terribly misguided foreign policy.  I recently saw a poster in the streets of Beirut that read:  Your 9/11 is our 24/7. Let us not forget them.

Blessings for your immediate leadership in prayer. Grace Said has a strong point: how can we reach out in prayer to all the peoples on Europe and the Middle East who are victims of terrorist activity?  Please help us find concrete ways to send our love and the Light of Christ to them.
