O Sacred Heart of Jesus, we come before you
to entrust our prayers and petitions for our Church, nation and families.
We pray for the conversion of hearts to protect religious freedom,
the sanctity of human life and the sanctity of marriage.
We beg for your mercy and forgiveness
for ways we have turned from your love,
and pray in reparation for those sins committed against life and freedom.
We pray that our hearts be united to yours
in order that all mankind may come together to worship and adore you
in unity rooted in love and mercy.
We do this through the intercession of
Our Blessed Mother, Mary Immaculate;
St. Joseph, Guardian of the Church;
St. Thomas More and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, our diocesan patrons;
and all the angels and saints.
