Our Lady of Clonfert, Bless Both Boston and the World

Our Lady of Clonfert is a bleeding statue from Ireland, found in a tree where it was hidden during a time in Ireland when zealots of the reformed faiths persecuted Catholics for their faith. It is an object of veneration in Ireland today.

As Boston comes to terms with its tragedy, we pray to Mary who is venerated in both the Islamic and the Christian worlds to stop hearts hardening, and to see that the actions of a few are not the actions of all men.

Let this atrocity that the city has suffered not cause more wars such as 911 did in Afghanistan and Iraq, for it is the spread of hate and a global confrontation that is the aim of those who cause such terror.

Mary, Mariam, Maire, her name we know
As the mother of Jesus, Isa, Iosa, we all revere
Son of God, Allah, Dé, father of all
Who made the world, and us all here!

Guide thoughts, actions, laws and deeds,
In these present troubled times,
Give forgiveness to the hearts of man,
In the wake of horrific crimes.

Bless the city, the hearts of Boston,
Let not hearts harden, filled with hate,
But see beyond the deeds, to the decency of men,
That reflects Gods glory, makes true men great.

The meek inherit the earth, it is said
Jesus, Isa, Iosa said, let us be so,
The boastful preach crusade, jihad, hate, revenge
They evil only in their hearts know.
