“”Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27-28)
On This Date…
On September 11, 2001, a Tuesday, 2,973 people lost their lives at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and a quiet field in Shanksville, PA – at 8:46 AM, 9:03 AM, 9:47 AM, and 10:07 AM, during a series of terrorist attacks. Today our nation remembers those who lost their lives, those who were injured, and those who responded to the needs of the injured and dead.
On September 11, 1958, Father Cyril Miron, O.Praem, died in Wisconsin at age 55; he arrived at Archmere on September 9, 1932, the fourth Norbertine to join the new faculty. He taught French and Latin, was the Dean of Discipline, and the moderator of Archmere’s first yearbook, the 1935 “Keystone”. He left Archmere in 1935 to do graduate work at the Catholic University of America. He was later a chaplain in the US Army, serving two years in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
In today’s Gospel, which Father Zagarella read at the assembly this morning, Jesus said, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you”. May we have “that reverence for one another that will make us apostles of peace” (Archmere Prayer).
