In scanning The Washington Post for November 22nd, 1963, I came across this small prayer, printed that day in section D8. It was a small block at the top right of the page and I nearly missed it, but in reading it, and placing it in the context of the day, I found it to be rather powerful.

This was printed early in the morning and President Kennedy would be shot in the early afternoon. The lines that stood out the most are:

Help us to bear patiently this day’s sorrow …
… We ask for light for today’s darkness.

It’s almost foreshadowing the pain the country was about to experience in a few short hours. Share this one on Facebook with your friends and family.
