SIMPLE PRAYER (I)

for the victims and survivors of sexual abuse

 

 

FATHER

 

Since your mercy has been revealed

In the tenderness of your Son Jesus Christ,

who said to his disciples:

"Suffer the little children to come unto me”,

we pray that your Church may be a secure home

where all children and vulnerable adults are brought closer to your Beloved Son.

 

May all those who have been abused

physically, emotionally and sexually by your ministers,

be respected and accompanied by

tangible gestures of justice and reparation so that

they may feel healed with the balm of your compassion.

 

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord

 

Amen
