My character is a teacher at a boarding school. This woman is profoundly devout but very quiet about it usually.
My situation: A couple of her students have just been killed in a very serious accident. I need to know what sort of prayers or verses would be appropriate to a character of that age and background- Scriptural references are fine, extra shiny points for anything in Latin if it's suitable. She's feeling very bitter about the students' deaths- very regretful that she couldn't prevent it. This person regards her students as though they were her own children. So I'm looking for mourning, here, and penitence.
Can anyone suggest anything? Any websites I should be looking at? I'll take any tidbits you have.
