A Rosary for the Holy Innocents of Newtown

A Rosary for the Holy Innocents of Newtown, Connecticut: A Liturgay for Peace

Make a sign of faith or meditative readiness.

            Prayer Refrain:
            O Goddess make speed to save us, O Creation make haste to help us.

First Meditation:
A voice was heard in Newtown,
sobbing and loud lamentation;
America weeping for her children,
and she would not be consoled,
since they were no more.

            Prayer Refrain

Second Meditation:
May all evil sleep,
May all good awake.
May bright wisdom prevail,
May deep peace dwell in our hearts.

            Prayer Refrain

Third Meditation:
From division, keep us
From hatred, shield us
From scorn, relieve us
From vengeance, turn us.

            Prayer Refrain

Fourth Meditation:
May hard choices be made
May the greater good be known
May peace be our rock
May loving-kindness, healing and Justice be among us.
            Prayer Refrain
