VOCATION REFLECTION: St Luke tells us today where true blessing lies – and where the fleeting rewards of the world. Blessed are we who respond to God’s call; happy shall we be. (Luke 6:17, 20-26)
PRAYER AGAINST CRIME
from the depths of our hearts,
we pray that you will comfort, heal and bless all the victims of crime.
We pray too that you will protect all people from the evil of crime and violence.
We pray especially for the conversion of all criminals –
remove all evil from their hearts
and fill them with your goodness and love,
that they may cease their evil works
and that our city and our land
may be freed from the scourge of crime and violence.
We pray also for the grace
to purge ourselves of all violence
in our own thoughts and actions,
in our family life, in our friendships
and in our relationships with others.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
