Special prayer for the Pope's and the Patriarch's pilgrimage to the Holy Land - Fides News Agency







Here are several prayers being offered by the Catholics of the Holy Land (Israel, Palestine & Jordan) as the day of the pilgrimage to the Holy Places of Pope Francis of Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople.




Heavenly Father, you never tire of being compassionate and loving. The successor of St. Peter plans to visit the Holy Land sanctified by your Son’s birth, baptism, teaching, death and resurrection. Be with him, sanctify him, and bless him. Spread the mantle of your kindness over every stage of his pilgrimage among us, that one may see in him a believing pilgrim, a wise teacher, and a humble leader.


Lord Jesus Christ, who prayed for the unity of your Church, saying, "May they all be one": make the meeting in Jerusalem between the Holy Father and the Ecumenical Patriarch an incentive to increase our efforts for the unity of your children.


Good Shepherd, whose image Pope Francis carries on his pectoral cross, walking in the spirit of humility with which you have graced him: deepen within us the awareness of our Christian identity, that as true disciples, we may bear witness to your Good News and your resurrection in our churches, our society, and all the world, especially by serving the sick, the poor, and the refugees.
