Prayer In Times of National Crisis

Our country is again experiencing deep political and economic crises. The present situation seems that positive development will not come anytime soon. The president herself is beleaguered by scandals coming from all sectors of the society. The church seems to be in a very cautious mode in dealing with the problem and coming out with a united stand. People everywhere are asking for guidance and enlightenment.

It is at these times when we are encouraged to pray more deeply and as one country. Let us storm heaven with our collective petitions of peace, unity and sobriety. Let us call on God to once more grant our beloved Philippines a miracle of national healing and renewal. Let us together recite this prayer as one family, one community, one country.


(At the discretion of the Local Ordinary , this PRAYER maybe recited in all churches and public oratories before the prayer after Communion at all Masses on August 15. It is recited kneeling).

Lord Jesus Christ,
we solemnly inaugurate today a year of grace,
a year we dedicate to the Holy Eucharist
nd to the Blessed Virgin Mary, your Mother.
We need to experience as a nation
the transforming power of the Eucharist
For we are wounded people,
wounded by political conflicts and tribal wars,
wounded by unjust socio-economic divisions,
wounded by corruption and moral degeneration.

Lord Jesus Christ,
as often as we celebrate the Holy Eucharist,
we remember how much you love us.
let the Eucharist help us to work together as a people
so that in every home, barangay, town and city
all may live in a culture of peace, unity and renewal.
May the prayer of Mary, our Mother, accompany us
as we journey together in this year of grace
toward national healing and reconciliation.

Lord Jesus Christ,
we believe in the transforming power of the Eucharist
and we trust in the loving care of Mary, our Mother.
grant them then in your tender mercy
what we ask for in faith, hope and love. Amen

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
Saint Lorenzo Ruiz, pray for us.
That in all things God may be glorified.
