“Every human being is the object of God’s infinite tenderness, and he himself is present in their lives. Jesus offered his precious blood on the cross for that person. Appearances notwithstanding, every person is immensely holy and deserves our love....We achieve fulfillment when we break down walls and our heart is filled with faces and names!”
Pope Francis
Evangelii Gaudium, 274

Prayer of intercession

Most holy and merciful God, strength of the weak, rest of the weary, comfort of the sorrowful, Savior of the sinful, our refuge in every time of need: grant us strength and protect us; support us in all dangers, and carry us through all trials. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
