Let us pray for doctors and their humanitarian collaborators in war-torn areas, who risk their lives to save the lives of others.

Prayer

God of Kindness,
that you contemplate your Son Jesus,
we feel called to be generous,
to put in first place the needs of our brothers and sisters
before our own comfort and safety.
Help us not to be indifferent and lazy
to perform the well that is within our reach.
We ask that your grace
will be the strength of doctors and the volunteer staff
that serve the victims of war.
Be their refuge in moments of discouragement and tiredness,
so that their example may be light in the midst of darkness.
Our Father…

 

Offering Prayer

 

Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am at the beginning of this new day.
Put my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
that is given for me and that comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit
make me your friend and apostle, available to your mission.
I put in your hands
my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings,
everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this Worldwide Prayer Network.
With Mary, I offer you this journey for the mission of the Church and the Pope’s prayer intentions for this month. Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Internalize yourself and share the work of medical institutions and humanitarian collaborators who carry out their mission in war zones, collaborating with whatever is necessary.
  • Promote, in your community, a moment of prayer for all those who put their lives at risk to help the victims of war.
  • Personally, or as a group, reflect on how to put the talents of academic and professional formation at the service of our siblings, especially the poorest and those who suffer.
