Call to Prayer from Pope Francis, on 12 January 2022. Please say this prayer and disseminate as widely as you can. Fr. Peter
“Eternal Father, You have made the whole world stop walking for a while.
You have forcibly silenced the noise that we have all created around us.
You have made us bend our knees and ask for miracles.
You closed Your Churches so that we realize how dark our world is without You in it.
You humiliated the proud and powerful. The economy is collapsing, businesses are closing.
We have been very proud to think that everything we have, everything we own, have been the result of our hard work.
We have forgotten that it was Your grace, Your mercy, that made us who we are and has given us everything we have.
We are going around in circles looking for some cure for this disease, when in fact we need to humble ourselves and ask for guidance and wisdom only from You.
We have been living our lives as if we are here on Earth forever, as if there is no Heaven, no Purgatory, no Hell.
Perhaps this virus is actually Your way of purifying and cleansing our souls, bringing us back to You.
Today, as these words travel the internet, may all who see them join their hearts and hands in prayer, asking for forgiveness, asking for healing and protection against this virus, but above all, asking that Your Holy and Divine Will be done and not ours.
God we beg You, deliver us from all evil on Earth if it is Your will!
Father, You have been patiently waiting for us to turn our faces to You, to repent of our sins. We are sorry to ignore Your voice! Selfishly, sometimes we have forgotten that You are GOD!! Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my house, but one word from you will be enough to heal me!
You Lord only need to say the Word and our souls will be healed.
We ask You for healing and deliverance in Jesus’ name! By the infinite merits of his Most Sacred Heart and of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Amen.
