Mary, Mother of Light, with calm confidence we call upon you, asking you to share with us your mission of bringing the Light and Love of Jesus to this world, which is so often veiled in darkness.
Teach us to protect the flame of faith given to us in Baptism. With your prayer and guidance allow us to illuminate with Christ’s love the lives of the suffering and the poor who feel forgotten and lost, who live lives burdened by many afflictions. For love of you and Jesus, may we walk with them and see their struggles transformed into a life-giving participation in the fruitful Sacrifice of His Holy Cross. Amen.
Mary, Mother of Light, pray for us.
María, Madre de la Luz, con plena confianza te invocamos pidiendo que compartas con nosotros tu misión de llevar la Luz y el Amor de Jesús a este mundo, que está oculto en la oscuridad.
Enséñanos a proteger la llama de la fe que se nos da en el Bautismo. Con tu oración y guía permítanos iluminar con el amor de Cristo las vidas de los que sufren y los pobres que se sienten olvidados y perdidos, que tienen vidas agobiadas por muchas aflicciones. Por amor a ti y a Jesús, te pedimos que podemos caminar con ellos y ver sus luchas transformadas en una participación de vida en el fructífero Sacrificio de Su Santa Cruz. Amén.
María, Madre de la Luz, ruega por nosotros.

Prayer for the Homeless
Hear our prayer today for all women and men, boys and girls who are homeless this day.
For those sleeping under bridges, on park benches, in doorways or bus stations.
For those who can only find shelter for the night but must wander in the daytime.
For families broken because they could not afford to pay the rent. For those who have no relatives or friends who can take them in.
For those who have no place to keep possessions that remind them who they are.
For those who are afraid and hopeless.
For all these people, we pray that you will provide shelter, security and hope.
We pray for those of us with warm houses and comfortable beds; that we not be lulled into complacency and forgetfulness.
Jesus, help us to see your face in the eyes of every homeless person we meet; so that we may be empowered through word and deed , to bring justice and peace to those who are homeless. Amen
