Righteous God, you hear the prayer of the poor. In company with those who have given their lives for the sake of the poor and oppressed, we pray: God, in your justice, hear our prayer. 

Inspire Pope Francis, bishops, pastors, and deacons to serve the Church with mercy and love.  

     God, in your justice, hear our prayer.  

Rescue those who are directly affected by oppression, corrupt rulers, or economic instability.  

     God, in your justice, hear our prayer. 

Grant perseverance to missionaries, lay volunteers, and servants to the poor.  

     God, in your justice, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . . 

May God guide our search for meaning and strengthen us in our discipleship, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
