31. A Very Special Intention

I am sure you all have heard of what happened earlier. It's tragic, devastating, and heartbreaking. I don't even want to turn on the news anymore, but I  do want to pray for these people. Please pray the following prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, we know that You created all things to be good. When things like this happen, we can't help but to ask,"why?"  We know, deep in our hearts, that You would never make such tragic things happen, and we know that You love us eternally. We also know that You have a plan for us, and You guide and guard us from evil. We pray for the victims on this day, that they may see the light of Your Face, and they may be welcomed into Your Kingdom.
Lord Jesus, we know that you suffered for our sins. May your suffering help the soul of the killer; may his heart be softened, and may he repent and regain Your Mercy. 
May Your most Holy Spirit fill the families that have been affected by this most devastating event, so that they may not seek revenge, but rather seek to forgive, and to have mercy on the man who took so many lives today. We ask this through the most faithful intercession of our heavenly mother, as we pray:
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
