We pray that the cries of our migrant brothers and sisters, victims of criminal trafficking, may be heard and heeded

Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
You who were a guest and a pilgrim in our midst.
You who ran away from violence,
looking for a safe refuge in Egypt.
Give us the grace to recognize you
in the faces of our brothers and sisters
forced to leave their homelands because of war
and the injustice of poverty and violence.
May your Holy Spirit touch our hearts and ears
so that we are not indifferent to the cry of these brothers and sisters of ours,
victims of criminal trafficking.
Convert the hearts of those who bring so much damage
to our brothers and sisters.
Our Father…

 

Offering Prayer

 

Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
who is giving himself for me and who comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit make me your friend and apostle,
available for your mission of compassion.
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 my journey for the mission of the Church
and for the intentions of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network for this month. Amen.

Prayer

Month’s Prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ
At the beginning of this year,
and bearing in mind that you came among us as Prince of Peace,
we give thanks for the gift of Your presence
and the call to fraternity that you bring us….
calling us your brothers and sons of the same Father.
This month, united to the Pope and his Worldwide Prayer Network,
We ask that we all feel this call
to the construction of peace and justice.
That religious, cultural and social differences
are not walls between us,
but reasons for mutual enrichment
and building a better world,
the kingdom of heaven among us.

Let us pray that every country take the measures necessary to prioritize the future of the very young, especially those who are suffering.

Prayer

Father of Goodness,
the birth of your Son Jesus opens a new time to the world,
a time of hope and peace.
We pray for children and adolescents,
especially those who live discouraged by their difficulties and sufferings,
who do not find opportunities to develop, feel enthusiasm for the future,
nor the support they need to have a decent life.
Help us to give them a bright future,
embracing with love the children and adolescents of today,
so they can transform the world that you have created
in a space of life and fraternity among all.
Our Father…
