A Prayer for This Present Darkness

A Powerful Prayer for Difficult Times in the Church

Mary - Mother of the Church, Guardian Angels of the Church, our parish, and diocese, St. Peter - Father of the Church, St. Joseph - Protector of the Church, we beseech you to join with us in prayer for the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops, leaders, and all Apostoli Viae members around the world.

Merciful Father, we beg You by Your boundless love, Jesus' passion and death, and this meager act of prayer and sacrifice, to penetrate, regenerate, and encourage the hearts of all these leaders and especially bishop/cardinals(s) ______________ our priests _________________ religious, deacons, educators, and leaders of our parish and diocese and those whom they serve. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon them. Set them continually on fire with a faithful submissive and compelling love for Christ and His Church. 

Bring life, discipline, healing, repentance, humility, and holy passion to those who need to turn their hearts to you. Lift up those who work to serve and submit to You, Your Church, and Your magisterium. Encourage them, strengthen them, bless them, protect them, and make their joyful voices heard as they live and proclaim Your marvelous truth and love. We beg you to silence, expose, and make of no effect those who will not repent and who sow sin, rebellion, discord, confusion and untruth in the Body of Christ.

Most Holy and Blessed Trinity, grant us permission and the means to humbly and effectively serve Your glorious church in and through our parish and diocese. Open the doors and hearts necessary to allow us to see and serve those whom You are drawing ever more deeply into Your care. Help us to humbly and energetically love and serve them, as we would You.

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Amen! // We beg you to silence, expose, and make of no effect those who will not repent and who sow sin, rebellion, discord, confusion and untruth in the Body of Christ.// This is timely since Joe Biden was refused Holy Communion ... for his soul's sake. May holy priests continue to do what they should do as good shepherds. Beautiful and powerful prayer!
