In nomine Patris, et Fili, et Spiritus Sancti.

For the truth of love and compassion to embrace those who are in most need of your mercy; for the light of redemption and rescue to pierce the darkness of all who suffer; and for your sweet presence in our times of pain and bitterness. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the wounded healers who come to our aid as bearers of grace; for the faith walkers who travel for us via prayers; and for soul doctors who guide us to the threshold of miracles. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Give us all quiet wisdom when explanations and excuses minimize our pain and our need for holy grace. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Remind us of your presence when we find ourselves in crowded lonely places. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Nourish our hearts with fruits of the spirit during times of violence, plague, and famine. Press us to give to each other through the abundance of divine grace. Take away our fears of poverty, prejudice, and injustice through the awareness that you, alone, know the secrets of our hearts. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

When violence strikes us and those we love, give us peace that overcomes our need for revenge. Curb the injurious impulses we think we are entitled to act out. Keep us true to the One who was crucified and yet uttered “Father, forgive them.” Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We confess our sins and pray for the waters of forgiveness to cleanse our hearts and renew our faith. Create forgiving spirits in us and make us vessels of peace and compassion.   Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Give rest to your servants with your saints and everlasting light to those who have crossed over into your kingdom. Bless the spirits in constant vigil and unceasing prayer above us and who whisper the mysteries of grace to the consciousness of our being.  Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, be present now and forever.

Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
