A Day of Infamy!
Today terrorist attacked the World Trade Building in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington by having the hijackers on our planes crash into these building The passengers on the third plane were able to prevent the third attack when they overcame the attackers before the plane when down in Pennsylvania. The country was immediately put on high alert and this has now continued. The passengers on all the planes died and over 3,000 persons died in the World Trade Building. This day will never be forgotten in the history of the United States. Fortunately, no Daughters of Charity or Vincentians were killed.
St. Joseph’s Church in Emmitsburg prepared a prayer service including exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
Messages were received from the Daughters of Charity around the world giving us their support and a promise of prayers.
