Pray for our Pakistani Catholic brothers and sisters


#1

Hi everyone. I feel that we all need to pray for our Pakistani Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ. They are having a rough time living in their nation according to a Pakistani Catholic that I know of. Please pray for them.

I will. Having spent 25 years with the Canadian Forces I have deployed to some of the worst areas of the world and I know first hand about the suffering experienced by the smallest, weakest and most vulnerable of our fellow human beings.

Dear Saint Thomas the Apostle, you were once slow in believing that Christ had gloriously risen; but later, because you had seen him, you exclaimed: “My Lord and my God!” According to an ancient story, you rendered most powerful assistance for constructing a church in a place where pagan priests opposed it. Please bless all those who live in opposition to their faith, especially in the country of your special patronage, Pakistan, that through them and their example, the Lord may be honored. Amen.

Eternal Father, we humbly offer Thee our poor presence, and that of the whole of humanity, from the beginning to the end of the world at all the Masses that ever have or ever will be prayed. We offer Thee all the pains, sufferings, prayers, sacrifices, joys, and relaxations of our lives, in union with those of our Lord Jesus here on earth. May the Most Precious Blood of Christ, all His Blood, Wounds, and Agony save us, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Amen.

[INDENT][INDENT]Prayer on Behalf of Persecuted Christians

Almighty, ever-living God,

Your incarnate Son taught us that those who suffer for your name are blessed.

Give love for their neighbor to all people of good will.

Inspire rulers and governments to work tirelessly for peace, justice and freedom for all.

Give us a spirit of solidarity and of service for those who suffer and who are poor, that we may bring to them that love your Son made manifest by his suffering and death on the cross.

Help us to recognize the face of the Evil One in our day and give us the strength and means to confront his many works.

Amen.
