+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Said in unison:

Righteous God, who deem it just to repay with affliction those who mistreat your children, forgive the sins we commit which harm our neighbors.  Temper your vengeance when we claim not to know you.  Ease your wrath when we fail to obey the gospel Christ taught.  Let the glory of your might undergird our endeavors, as through Christ you deliver us from our weakness and shame.  O God, have mercy upon us and fill us with your splendor.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Note:  The English word “anger” comes from an Old Norse word for grief.  Out of grief, whether or not this grief is justified, we strike out against each other, committing deeds of vengeance and social injustice.  Thus we create more grievances in each other.  Somebody needs to break the chain of grief, if peace is to reign.
