Merciful God, you call us to yourself and we belong to you. In company with St. Anthony we pray: God, show us mercy.  

Give peace to those who are troubled or live amid conflict, and help us to end all violence and war. 

God, show us mercy.  

Heed the cries of refugees, and sensitize us to their plight. 

God, show us mercy.  

Strengthen caregivers for those with mental illness. 

God, show us mercy.  

Our Father . . .  

May God instill us with courage to bear Christ’s love to all the world in every circumstance of our lives, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
