Prayer to St. Benedict Joseph Labre

Dearest St. Benedict Joseph Labre, you who truly understand what it is like to be homeless, I ask your prayers for all those who are homeless. You were totally reliant upon the generosity and kindness of others. Pray that those who are homeless experience kindness, understanding and love from others. You know what it felt like to be turned away and scoffed at. Pray that the wounds of the hearts of the homeless may be healed, and that they may be able to openly embrace the charity of others. Through your gracious intercession, may they find safe places to lay their heads, friendly and accepting places to eat meals, and supportive places to bathe and receive medical care. Amen.
