Please Join Us in Prayer
From June 11 to 19, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, we join in nine days of prayer to end racism of every kind.
Prayer recited in unison.
Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus, we have failed to live in your love. Generation after generation, your people of color have been disregarded and abused, tortured and killed. Dispel the darkness of racism and hatred in the soul of our nation and nations of the world. Have mercy on us and transform our hearts to love each person as you love them.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in you.
Day 1, June 11
“We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.”
Pope Francis (Virtual Public Audience, June 3, 2020)
