Join with the Oratory in praying for countries in Southern Europe, using the World Council of Churches’ resources (https://www.oikoumene.org/en/resources/prayer-cycle/week-6-ad-it-mt-pt-sm-es-va)

If you’re interested in joining in the intention, you can write a comment on this blog post, like or comment on the Oratory’s Facebook page, or send an mail to the chaplain at beguine2@yahoo.com. A candle will be lit for all who do so at a mass at the Oratory on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 pm EST.

With them we pray:

We are thankful for:

  • the rich historical legacies and distinctive cultures in these countries.
  • the faithful witness of the churches in the midst of empire building and colonization
  • the many and diverse waves of migrants who have come to these lands.
  • the hospitality that long has been shown to those arriving on their shores.

We pray for:

  • the preservation of the fragile environments and shorelines in this region.
  • an end to economic and political turmoil.
  • stable governments that end corruption and serve the common good.
  • policies that relieve disparities between those who are rich and poor.
