9-11 Remembrance

Hammond firefighters, parishioners, and community members gathered today to remember 9-11 with prayer. We solemnly rang our 19th-century bells at 8:46 am, the clock time when the first aircraft struck the World Trade Center. The bells seemed to me to toll the words of Pope Paul VI to the United Nations in 1965: No more war; war never again.
