Memorial of Saint Cornelius, Pope, and Cyprian, Bishop, Martyrs
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 for those persons living on the margins of society, in inhumane life conditions; may they not be overlooked by institutions and never considered of lesser importance. Amen
Divine Shepherd, You did not consult “Who’s Who” when You arranged Your social calendar. You dined with sinners and associated with lepers. Purify our hearts of all self-righteousness, Lord, so that we too might minister in whatever way we can, to the neglected, the marginalized and the ostracized members of our society. Amen

We all could use some healing in our life. And prayer is the best way for us to communicate our needs with God.
Healing Prayers is a wonderful prayer book created by the Missionary Oblates for all those who long for the healing power of the Lord. For these persons, this prayer book has been written in faith and hope that, united in prayer, we might all experience healing of body, mind and spirit in every aspect of our lives.
