Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Voice of the day

– Gareth Higgins, “Bloody Sunday and Telling the Truth

Prayer of the day
Lord, on this fifty first year since Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland we continue to cry out with the victims of violence throughout the world, “How long, how long must we sing this song? How long? How long?”

– U2, “Sunday Bloody Sunday”
