President Thomas S. Monson reflects on 9/11

The Washington Post has published a series of "On Faith" commentaries, featuring columns written by prominent religious figures as they share their thoughts and reflections on the tenth anniversary of September 11.  One of the columns, "9/11 destruction allowed us to spiritually rebuild," was authored by President Thomas S. Monson.  He wrote:

If there is a spiritual lesson to be learned from our experience of that fateful day, it may be that we owe to God the same faithfulness that He gives to us. We should strive for steadiness, and for a commitment to God that does not ebb and flow with the years or the crises of our lives. It should not require tragedy for us to remember Him, and we should not be compelled to humility before giving Him our faith and trust. We too should be with Him in every season.
The rest of his column can be found here, and here is a Church news release about the column.

Other "On Faith" columns featured in the Washington Post have been authored by Desmond Tutu, T.D. Jakes, Feisal Abdul Rauf, Donald WuerlKatharine Jefferts Schori, Mark Driscoll, Karen Armstrong, Deepak Chopra, and Yasir Qadhi.
