Prayers of the faithful Priest: Christ Jesus loves us as his own body, and that is
what we are. May the prayers we now offer be filled with his Spirit. Peter spoke
for the rest of the Apostles when he said “ Lord, to whom shall we go, you have the
message of Eternal Life”. This weekend Pope Francis, the successor of St. Peter
visits our country. May his visit encourage us all. Lord, hear us. Pope Francis
is here to honour the family and reflect the joy of love in what he says, and in
the symbolic gestures he makes. May each of us grow in appreciation of our own family.
Lord, hear us. May we be grateful to Pope Francis for the way he has highlighted
the human family as the mirror or the sign of God’s love in our midst. Lord, hear
us. Pope Francis knows that no family is perfect; and that every family is a journey
we make together, with the support of each other. May our family transport us safely
on the pilgrimage of life. Lord, hear us. We acknowledge the hurt and pain that has
been caused to children and vulnerable adults who have been victims of clerical
sexual abuse as a result of failure & negligence on the part of some priests and
religious. We pray for healing and forgiveness. May the safeguarding programme
that is in place today ensure that it may never happen again. Lord, hear us.
Extract from Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis to the People of God. “If one member
suffers, all suffer together with it” (1 Cor 12:26). These words of Saint Paul forcefully
echo in my heart as I acknowledge once more the suffering endured by many minors
due to sexual abuse, the abuse of power and the abuse of conscience perpetrated by
a significant number of clerics and consecrated persons. Crimes that inflict deep
wounds of pain and powerlessness, primarily among the victims, but also in their
family members and in the larger community of believers and nonbelievers alike. Looking
back to the past, no effort to beg pardon and to seek to repair the harm done will
ever be sufficient. Looking ahead to the future, no effort must be spared to create
a culture able to prevent such situations from happening, but also to prevent the
possibility of their being covered up and perpetuated. The pain of the victims and
their families is also our pain, and so it is urgent that we once more reaffirm our
commitment to ensure the protection of minors and of vulnerable adults. It is essential
that we, as a Church, be able to acknowledge and condemn, with sorrow and shame,
the atrocities perpetrated by consecrated persons, clerics, and all those entrusted
with the mission of watching over and caring for those most vulnerable”.
