VOCATION REFLECTION: Do you have the courage to say “I will follow wherever you go:? Don’t look back, fix your eyes on Jesus. He is is the way. (Luke 9:51-62)
PRAYER AGAINST CRIME LORD GOD, 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 make our prayer through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
