Traders Gather On 9/11 Anniversary

By Michael Scotti

McShane also celebrated the Mass. The Mass served double duty: Besides commemorating 9/11 victims, its other intention was to welcome back Fordham student for the new school year. "Living well is the best revenge," he told the 1,200 in attendance during his Homily. McShane echoed those words several times and at one point said that they "should be our post-Sept. 11 motto and approach to life."

McShane's thoughts on "living well" initially sounded contrary to the theme of forgiveness that two earlier readings contained. And not something one would expect to hear from the pulpit.

However, he went on to explain that "living well" has nothing to do with self-indulgence or conspicuous consumption. In fact, McShane called for attendees to live lives of "conspicuous compassion," asking them to show mercy and charity toward others, as well as forgiveness. "That is our triumph." he said. "That is our revenge."

Before the final blessing, attendees were asked to turn south, toward where the Twin Towers stood, and raise their right hand, as McShane recited a prayer.
