"France, once again, has been hit in its soul ... on our national day," Manuel Valls said Friday. The days of mourning will begin Saturday. At least 84 were killed when a truck drove into a crowd.
Let us pray for the dead, the wounded, their loved ones, and those who seek to harm others. May God's peace come in our time.
Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with all who mourn; that, casting all their care on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, page 505)
