Daily Prayer

July 10th - Prayer from the Pope

Loving God,
Creator of Heaven, Earth, and all therein contained.  Open our minds and touch our hearts, so that we can be part of Creation, your gift.  Be present to those in need in these difficult times, especially the poorest and most vulnerable.  Help us to show creative solidarity as we confront the consequences of the global pandemic.  Make us courageous in embracing the changes required to seek the common good.  Now more than ever, may we all feel interconnected and interdependent.  Enable us to succeed in listening and responding to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor.  May their current sufferings become the birth-pangs of a more fraternal and sustainable world.

We pray through Christ our Lord,  Amen.
By Pope Francis 

A stunning rainbow stretched over New York helped lift the spirits of residents left stricken by the Coronavirus. The colourful arch appeared just hours after Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared that the worst of the outbreak was 'over'.
