Worldwide United Prayer

During his address yesterday, Pope Francis urged every family, every individual Catholic, and every religious community to join in worldwide prayer on Thursday at 4 p.m. (EST).


"Every family, every faithful, every religious community: all united spiritually tomorrow at 9 p.m. (Rome time) in the recitation of the Rosary, with the Mysteries of Light. I will accompany you from here."


Prayer to St Joseph


Protect, O Holy Guardian, this our nation.


Enlighten those responsible for the common good, so that they might know — like you do — how to care for those entrusted to their responsibility.


Grant intelligence of knowledge to those seeking adequate means for the health and physical well-being of their brothers and sisters.


Sustain those who are spending themselves for those in need, even at the cost of their own safety: volunteers, nurses, doctors who are on the front lines in curing the sick.


Bless, O St Joseph, the Church: beginning with her ministers, make her the sign and instrument of your light and your goodness.


Accompany, O St Joseph, our families: with your prayerful silence, create harmony between parents and their children, in a special way with the youngest.


Preserve the elderly from loneliness: grant that no one might be left in desperation from abandonment and discouragement.


Comfort those who are the most frail, encourage those who falter, intercede for the poor.


With the Virgin Mother, beg the Lord to liberate the world from every form of pandemic.


Amen.
