God of the Chosen People,
and God of Us All,
us to remember what evil mankind
is capable of committing. Let us never forget the holocaust
of World War II.
evidence of barbaric inhumanity found
by the U.S. Army after World War II
in Hitler's concentration camps
was unspeakable: the horrendous unleashing
of evil incarnate.
give your most splendid heavenly welcome to the millions
of Jews who suffered unspeakable degradations, torture
and cruelest deaths in the enormous, heartless and infamous
purges of the Nazi regime. The blood of the victims cries
to heaven for vengeance. Let them never
us remember this lesson: the power
of one individual to do enormous good
in the world, or to lead us into unspeakable
degradation and inhumane evil. Lord, lead us not into temptation!
the souls of all those who suffered,
and all those who died, rest now in the Bosom
of Abraham, their lives a testament
to the terrible power of Satan, and a warning against the
hate into which we can be led
by one evil leader.
this I pray to You, God of All Peoples,
2012 Donn B. Murphy
