Opening Prayer Light and peace, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Almighty God, we give You thanks for surrounding us, as daylight fades, with the brightness of the vesper light; and as we implore of Your great mercy, that as You enfold us with the radiance of this light, so You would shine into our hearts the brightness of your Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Psalm 130)

Silent Meditation and The Lord’s Prayer Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Closing Litany Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: World without end. Amen.

We musicians, like everyone else, are numb with sorrow, and with rage at the senselessness of the crime. But this sorrow and rage will not inflame us to seek retribution; rather they will inflame our art. Our music will never again be quite the same. This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. And with each note we will honor the spirit of John Kennedy, commemorate his courage, and reaffirm his faith in the Triumph of the Mind. – Leonard Bernstein – November 25, 1963
