Prayer for Re-union with Eastern Orthodox in honor of Leo IX

Hi everyone,

Today is the feast day of Pope St. Leo IX (l. 21 June 1002 - 19 April 1054; r. 12 February 1049-death), the great pope and saint of 11th century, who worked hard to put an end to simony, immorality among the clergy, and other things. It was the refusal to recognize his embassy that led to the tragic East-West schism.

I think it’s appropriate therefore, that we pray for a re-union of the Eastern Orthodox and the Catholic Churches.

St. Leo IX, pray for us,

Benedicat Deus,
Latinitas

Lord, we ask that you mercifully guide the Eastern Orthodox and Catholic Churches toward unity and solidarity. Enlighten their leaders, that they might find solutions to their differences in doctrine and otherwise. Lead them with angelic and heavenly light toward this resolution. Show the world your light and glory through this intention. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, angels, and saints, pray with us. Amen.

**O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.
Amen.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

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.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
