We at Scots Catholic would like to offer our condolences to all affected by Monday's tragic events in Glasgow city centre.
We offer our prayers for those who lost their lives and for those they leave behind. We also pray for the injured and all involved in responding to the tragedy.
For the dead, we entrust their souls to the mercy of God:
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them, may they rest in peace, amen.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, amen.
For families and friends, and all others affected by the tragedy, we entrust their needs to our Blessed Mother:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen.
Archbishop Philip Tartaglia of Glasgow will say a special Mass for the dead at 1pm on Wednesday 24th December in St Andrew's Cathedral, Clyde Street, Glasgow.
We also understand other parishes around the country are offering up Masses for this intention.
