WASHINGTON, D.C. – His Excellency, the Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services, USA, issued the following statement on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Archbishop Broglio said:
“On behalf of my auxiliary bishops, the priests and the faithful of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, I invite people everywhere to pause and reflect prayerfully on what happened ten years ago. The unprovoked and unjust terrorist attack on our nation was an act of unspeakable evil contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the values of our Catholic faith.
“Today, we remember and pray for the souls of those who died at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania as well as those killed or wounded in subsequent overseas military action to defend our country from further aggression. Their sacrifice is a vivid reminder that all is not right in our world. No person of good will is left unmoved by the circumstances of their deaths.
“As we pray for the repose of their souls and the consolation of their families, we also raise our hearts and minds to almighty God and beg for the elusive gift of peace on earth and harmony among all people.”
As the nation’s only archdiocese without geographical boundaries, the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, endorses priests for on-site ministry at hundreds of locations throughout the country and around the world to Catholics and their families in the U.S. armed forces, VA Medical Centers and overseas civilian posts. Worldwide, an estimated 1.5 million Catholics depend on these priests to serve their spiritual and sacramental needs.
