Novena Prayer for Atonement for Clergy Sexual Abuse and Healing for All Who Have Been Harmed
Our Lady of Guadalupe, you appeared at a time to your children when countless people were being abused and sacrificed to provide them comfort, healing, and hope. You worked through a humble servant to bring millions home to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, in a time of paralysis and fear of the Catholic faithful, you brought forth The Little Way of receiving Merciful Love with total confidence and showed us the little steps whereby we may discover and serve Jesus.
Dearest Patronesses of our Diocese, we implore you now in our own time of atonement and healing, to come to our aid. Shower down Roses from Heaven for deep, pervasive healing, and authentic, courageous holiness. Please help the Bride of Christ and our beautiful, wounded Church to be renewed, and give us strength in Faith, Hope, and Love that we may each do our part.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we trust You to hear and answer our prayer.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us! Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, pray for us! Amen
