    Prayers definitely being offered – I’m in a bit of a shock. I remember crossing that bridge on a daily basis when I lived in Minneapolis, and riding my bike on the bike path below it regularly when I was in college.

    For the dead, the injured and the mourning – gratiam et virtutem dona eis, Domine.

  2. Christ Jesus, Have Mercy.

  6. Denis Crnkovic says:

    This afternoon before attending a play at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, my wife, daughter and I were enjoying the view from the theatre that overlooks the new park and the 35W bridge on the Mississippi. Within four hours the bridge had collapsed.

    For the dead: REQUIEM aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace. Amen.

    For those who have lived through this, may Our Lord succor them and preserve them from further harm.

    For those of us who feel undeservedly lucky at this moment, may Our Lord give us the grace to accept humbly the mysteries of His ways.

    Please heed Fr. Zuhlsdorf’s plea for prayers; this event has shocked all of us who live here and love this city.

  10. Prayers for all of the families and individuals affected by this terrible event.

    My family and I were glued to Fox News and CNN online last night watching the events unfold.

    We prayed a Divine Mercy chaplet for everyone last night.

    Lord have mercy!
