Please join in the worldwide prayers for unity this week by making this short novena we'll be using here at St.Edward's, praying for the different daily intentions below. This novena prayer will be said after all Masses this week:
Daily Novena Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, You called Your Church into being, founded her on the rock of Peter's faith, and prayed that she might be one. Look down upon Your Church today as she stands buffeted by the storms of an unbelieving world and distressed within by the weakness of sin and division. As You prayed for her once as You sweated blood in Your Agony, pray for her now from Your position of power at the right hand of the Father. Send down Your Holy Spirit to heal her divisions, confirm her in that Truth which You are, and restore her to that unity which once she knew. We ask this of You who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever. Amen.
Followed by: Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory Be.
