For the Innocents

O Lord in a place thought to be safe unspeakable horror visited itself upon your innocent ones. Only a parent who like You who has seen the lifeless form of a child can know the breaking sorrow that bends all life into a void from whence even grief cannot escape. In lamentation that cannot be possessed of words and in shrieks of weeping that cannot be contained we entreat you to comfort those who cannot be comforted and to heal those whose wounds cannot be healed. Let not O God the tear be the last sound that echoes in our hearts but let the whisper of hope be our inheritance. For you love’s sake Amen
