A Marian Prayer for Racial Healing
Mary, friend and mother to all,
through your Son, God has found a way to unite himself to every human being, called to be one people,
sisters and brothers to each other.
We ask for your help in calling on your Son, seeking forgiveness for the times when
we have failed to love and respect one another.
We ask for your help in obtaining from your Son the grace we need to overcome the evil of racism and to build a just society.
We ask for your help in following your Son, so that prejudice and animosity
will no longer infect our minds or hearts
but will be replaced with a love that respects the dignity of each person.
Mother of the Church,
the Spirit of your Son Jesus warms our hearts:
pray for us.
