In Jesus’ name, Father, please return Aziul’s Dad to You and the Church and lead him to live the fullness of Your loving will.
Please comfort and reassure his child who grieves his absence from the Sacraments. Please heal his self esteem, and heal him of alcoholism.
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is love and mercy itself.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
