Faithful God, you embrace all life in your tender mercy. Mindful of your great compassion shown to us in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we pray: 

God, in your love, hear us.  

Make your Church a place of welcome, safety, and love for all people. 

God, in your love, hear us.  

Heal those who suffer relationship wounds. 

God, in your love, hear us.  

Extend our prayer and your mercy to the forgotten places in the world. 

God, in your love, hear us.  

Our Father . . .  

May the Lord bless us with full knowledge of the breadth, height, and depth of God’s love for us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
