Prayer for the Survivors
and Those Who Did Not Survive
Good and gentle Shepherd, Sweet Spirit of God, Creator
In Your infinite tenderness comfort the survivors of sexual abuse
by Roman Catholic clergy.
Deliver them from sorrow, anoint them with hope, sustain them with
the Body of Christ.
Take to Your Sacred Heart those who have committed suicide.
Make of us ambassadors of Your justice, Your lifting of the oppressed
and Your desire for all of us to live and move and have our being
in Your abundant grace.
