The Chapel of Holy Innocents, in the Cathedral Crypt, has been set aside as a special place of prayer and contemplation following the attacks in Paris.
A Prayer for Paris
Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence
in so many parts of the world.
It seems that none are safe,
and some are terrified.
Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace –
peace that surpasses all understanding
and changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
