There are so many stories and incidents of cruelty and violence each day. Please can we remember that the people who commit these acts have often been victims themselves. Only someone with severe psychological and spiritual needs would behave with such sadism and cruelty. As we pray for their victims, may we also pray for them. May they acknowledge their behaviour and seek help and God’s forgiveness.
This is a difficult thing to pray for but if you can, please offer a prayer for these people. They are also God’s children and He would want them to be healed and to receive them.
God bless you and thank you,
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
