For the Church

I was upset today when hearing about the Church in the media today and on several news threads here on the forums so I feel compelled to pray about it. I hope others will join me in prayer. Thanks.

Christ our Lord please strenghten our church in these last times against the tide of sin in the world,give grace to all its members and courage to all our leaders,

Amen

Thanks. There just seemed so many attacks today in particular.

O God, our Refuge and our Strength,
look down with favour upon Thy people who cry to Thee,
And through the intercession of the Glorious and Immaculate Virgin Mary
Mother of God, of her blessed spouse Saint Joseph, of Thy blessed Apostles
Peter and Paul and all the Saints
Do Thou mercifully and graciously hear the prayers
We pour forth to Thee for the conversion of sinners
And for the liberty and exaltation of Holy Mother Church.:crossrc::knight2:

***Prayer to Mary, Mother of the Church ***

O Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church to you we recommend ourselves and the entire Church.
Guide and assist our Holy Father and our Bishops in their apostolic mission, and aid all who help them in their work.

Mother of the Church!
Enlighten the People of God along the paths of faith, hope and love! You were given to us as a mother by your Divine Son at the moment of his redeeming death.
Remember us your children, support our prayers to God.
Preserve our Faith, strengthen our Hope, increase our Charity.

Immaculate Heart!
Help us to conquer the menace of evil, which so easily takes root in the hearts of the people of today.
From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, and from every kind of war, deliver us.
From sins against human life from its very beginning, deliver us.
From every kind of injustice in the life of society, deliver us.
From readiness to trample on the commandments of God, deliver us.
From attempts to stifle the very truth of God, deliver us.
From the loss of awareness of good and evil deliver us.
From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us.

O Mary, conceived without sin, we who are gathered here today place ourselves under your special protection.
We resolve to walk in your footsteps and to imitate your virtues. Obtain for us, O tender Mother, the grace of being faithful to this promise.
Amen!
