September 11, A Reflection with Fr. James Martin, SJ

“The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness did not overcome it”

                                                                        -John 1:5 


On September 11, 2001, the people of the United States were shocked by tragic terrorist attacks that took the lives of many in New York City, N.Y., Arlington County, Va., and Shanksville, Pa.

Today, 13 years later, we prayerfully remember those who were lost as well as the courage and selflessness of those who came to the assistance of those in need.

Below is a video produced by America magazine for the 10th anniversary of this tragic day. In it, Fr. James Martin, SJ, recounts his first-hand experiences in New York City working with the men and women assisting in local relief efforts.
