In New Orleans and in Baghdad over the past three days
Save me, O God : for the waters are come in, even unto my soul.

I stick fast in the deep mire, where no ground is : I am come into deep waters, so that the floods run over me.
- Psalm 68/69:1-2

Of your charity pray.
...per Christum Dominum nostrum. In quo nobis spes beatæ resurrectionis effulsit, ut quos contristat certa moriendi conditio, eosdem consoletur futuræ immortalittis promissio. Tuis enim fidelibus, Domine, vita mutatur, non tollitur, et dissoluta terrestris hujus incolatus Domo, æterna in cœlis habitatio comparatur...
- Preface of the Dead, the Roman Mass
