Prayers for Healing
These are trying times in our beloved Catholic Church. While it can seem painful or disturbing to mention abuse crises amid our liturgical prayer, there is healing when we offer these most sensitive supplications to God the Father.
“The liturgy is also a participation in Christ’s own prayer addressed to the Father in the Holy Spirit. In the liturgy, all Christian prayer finds its source and goal. Through the liturgy the inner man is rooted and grounded in “the great love with which [the Father] loved us” in his beloved Son.”
“The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the font from which all her power flows.”
– Catechism of the Catholic Church, excerpts from paragraphs 1073 & 1074
Through grief, doubt, pain, and question, let us remain steadfast in our faith, and unite our prayers of healing for the Church in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
