Compassionate God, you speak to our hearts through Jesus. In hope we pray: Open our ears to your Word, O God.

Help us to respond to suffering with compassion.

Open our ears to your Word, O God.

Deepen your Church’s advocacy and concern for those who are most vulnerable.

Open our ears to your Word, O God.

Give your Church courage to engage with the challenges posed by Catholic social teaching.

Open our ears to your Word, O God.

Our Father . . .

May God be glorified in our work and in our prayer, through Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
