For the Victims of Hatred

Pieter Brueghel II Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery

Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery, by Pieter Brueghel the Younger. From Wikipedia.

Almighty God, Father of all mankind: we beseech thee to turn the hearts of those who through malice and hatred would seek to injure or oppress the stranger, the sojourner, and the Samaritan in our midst; for these are the neighbours whom thou hast commanded us to love, and it is in our demonstration of this love that we shew forth to all nations that we are, indeed, thy children; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Written after the assault on the Pulse night club in Orlando on 12 June 2016.
