Prayer for Persecuted Christians
by Fr. Rodolfo D. Vasquez
O God, Father of Justice and Peace, we commend to your merciful love, the peril of our Christian brothers and sisters who are tormented by wicked and evil men, whose ruthlessness has claimed so many innocent lives. Their injustice, blasphemously attributed to your name, has corrupted true religion and violated peace. Let your Divine Justice be done to restore peace in our troubled times. Convert the hearts of those who are obsessed with hate and have chosen evil filling them instead, with love and peace.
Send forth your Consoler Spirit upon those children of yours who bear the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. These, our dear brothers and sisters, men, women and children who carry the seal of Christ upon their souls are victims of evil. Console the families who mourn the loss of their loved ones, strengthen the faith of those who must endure such cruelty, and grant the crown of righteousness to those who heroically offer their lives as a sacrifice for the truth. In this time of war and violence, dear Lord we beg you to grant us peace and tranquility. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Victory, Mary most holy, may we soon be freed from this affliction so that your sons and daughters may continue to spread the message of love, truth and peace. Amen.
