HOLY LAND - Below you find the prayer prepared this week by the Sisters of Saint Charles, Jerusalem.
"Sacred Heart of Jesus, source of all good, we give you our poor heart, make it humble, patiently pure and in everything according to your desires.
Jesus, the suffering people have been brought to You; You, Lord, made them well. Help also our sufferings; free them from fear and pain. Give them consolation in their pain; Keep them from bitterness. You also have suffered so much, that is why You understand our requests. Graciously answer our prayers to help the sick.
Protect us all in dangers, comfort us in tribulations and sorrow. Grant us health of body and soul, Your blessing on all our works, and the grace of a holy death. Amen."
The Religious Families of the Holy Land, in collaboration with the Pastoral Office of the Latin Patriarchate, share a weekly prayer with the faithful that tackles a pertinent theme. The intention can be included in the prayer of the faithful (also in Vespers or Lauds).
