Pray for Our Church and our Holy Father Frances

May the Holy Spirit come to every parish around the world. For those being persecuted, may they be protected and receive the grace to have strength in their trials.

May the Holy Spirit move all hearts to seek Jesus in His church

We thank you, God, for bringing Pope Frances who is leading the church in the simplicity and truth of the gospel, in his daily homilies being our spiritual director. We thank you. We pray for his safety and protection.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
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 . Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
