Feast of St. Nicholas
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, the reunion of all Christians. We pray in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father that people living with disabilities may be at the center of attention in society, and that institutions may offer inclusive programs which value their active participation. Amen
God our Father, You sent St. Nicholas to take care of the poor and abandoned children who had no bread. O Lord, we pray that through the intercession of St. Nicholas You will protect the children of our world. Keep them safe from harm and guide them to Your loving, trustworthy embrace. Give the children strength to keep their faith in You; and to keep alive their joy in Your creation. Amen
