Nine years later, Father Gerard Critch's white medical jacket smells of smoke from the fires at Ground Zero. There is a yellow stain on the jacket's left lapel - tears from rescue workers crying in the priest's embrace. They would come to the church to change their boots after the soles melted in the fires burning amidst the 16 acres of rubble of the collapsed World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. In those brief moments of pause, Critch performed thousands of "last rites."
"They would ask for blessings, just in case they didn't come out alive," Critch says.
He looks at a hard hat with "God Bless" and "thank you's" scrawled across it in red marker.
"I wonder where they all are now … if they were able to clear their heads after that," Critch said. "We still have a lot of people who are suffering. The ones who are still alive need healing."
On Saturday, Critch will deliver his message of healing to the public during a memorial mass at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Naples in honor of the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

They will be blessed by Father Critch following the mass.
Father Critch says that Saturday's mass offers a way to ritualize the healing. He says that he suffered nightmares and sleepless nights for years after his time at Ground Zero, but says that sharing his experiences have set him on a trajectory to recovery. Critch warns that being consumed by anger will only lead to more pain.
"We need to become instruments of peace," Critch says.
