New Novena Prayer to OLPS
Many of you are familiar with the Novena prayer to OMPS that contains the line 'We think of you, Mother at the foot of the cross'. The Redemptorists in Ireland have slightly modified the prayer to reflect the times we are living in.
Thank you to https://www.redcoms.org/ for making this prayer available.
Mother of Perpetual Help, with the greatest confidence we come before your holy picture to beseech your intercession.
We think of you, Mother, at the foot of the Cross. Your heart must have bled to see your Son in agony. But your joy was great when He rose from the dead, victorious over the powers of evil.
Mother of Sorrows, pray for us in this time of trial. Help us not to lose heart. Intercede for your people who are afflicted with Coronavirus. Comfort your people who are vulnerable and anxious. Protect healthcare workers who put their lives at risk. Inspire our leaders to make good decisions. Change our hearts so that we may act responsibly.
Teach us to trust in God’s love and mercy and to share with you the joy of having courageously faced up to all the challenges of Life. Amen.
