Ravensbruk Prayer

As we approach Holy Week, I came across a prayer found at Ravensbruk concentration camp during World War II.  It caused me tothink of Jesus on the cross, asking God to forgive those who put him to death.  My desire would be to demonstrate a spirit similar to the Ravensbruk Prayer had I been in similar circumstances.

Lord, remember not only the men and women of good will also those of ill will.  But do not only remember the suffering they have inflicted on us.
Remember the fruits we have brought, thanks to this suffering–our  comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the
greatness of heart which has grown out of all this.

And when they come to judgment, let all the fruits we have borne be their forgiveness. Amen
