Victim: “Lord, have mercy.
Liturgy of Today: “Let us praise God.”
Victim: “I can’t breathe.”
Liturgy of Today: “Let us ask for blessings.”
Victim: “Lord, Deliver up.”
Liturgy of Today: “Let us sing the Doxology.”
God says, “I have heard their cry. I will not listen to the prayers that are irrelevant to the victims. Your hands are full of blood. I will deliver my people. Because the victims are the people of God.”
