CBCP calls on Filipino Catholics to say special from August 1, 2014 to January 14, 2015

Amen

Are you excited about the apostolic visit? If your answer is yes, this is for you. CBCP President and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas called on all Filipino Catholics on Thursday (July 31) to offer a prayer from August 1, 2014 to January 14, 2015 in prepration for Pope Francis’ arrival.

 

Aside from this, a  National Prayer for the Papal Visit will also be  prayed in masses before the post-Communion prayer.

 

The full text of the National Prayer is as follows:


God of mercy and compassion,we come to you in our need and lift up to you our nation as we prepare for the apostolic visit of Pope Francis.

After every invocation we say together: Bless your Church Lord!

That we may be faithful to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on earth, Bless your Church Lord!

That we may be eager to meet and listen to Pope Francis, Bless your Church Lord!

That we may be compassionate with the poor and the needy, Bless your Church Lord!

That we may be merciful with the weak and the lost, Bless your Church Lord!

That we may humbly confess our sins and return to God, Bless your Church Lord!

That we may frequently and devoutly receive Holy Communion, Bless your Church Lord!

Let us pray: God our Father, we are all your children. Make of us a nation of mercy and compassion eager to meet Pope Francis. Make us a nation of holiness and heroism through Christ our Lord. Amen.
