We hope that our followers and readers will now join us in the campaign for Masses and Prayers for this special year.
MEDITATION PRAYER FOR GRACE AND COMPASSION
FOR ALL BEINGS AND CARE FOR OUR PLANET
O God, during this “Year of St. Joseph Vaz” we pray for the strength to follow his example to comfort the afflicted, defend and aid the persecuted, nurse the abandoned victims of incurable disease, heal the sick, educate the disadvantaged, and help the poor and marginalized.
We thank God for the compassionate help of the Buddhist King of Kandy who extended his protection to St. Joseph Vaz from tyrannical rulers who sought his expulsion and death.
Through the intercession of Saint Joseph Vaz:
* Give us the discerning spirit and gifts of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control.
* Grant us the wisdom to work in unity with people of all races and religions, and to do our part to remove social and economic inequalities, to assist the marginalized and abandoned, and to bring about peace and harmony as St. Joseph Vaz did in his own life.
* Give us the strength to preserve Your creation, our common home and work for the sustainability of our planet.
PRAYER FOR A SPECIAL FAVOR THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF ST. JOSEPH VAZ
Eternal God of Infinite Love and Divine Mercy, we pray for a special favor for your child …. in my/his/her/their moment of great need. May the intercession of Saint Joseph Vaz, Apostle of Kanara and Sri Lanka, through whom You worked so many miracles for those persecuted and in need, both during his lifetime and after his death, obtain for this child of yours, the grace ….. we/I ask of You.
Increase our faith and enable us to grow in virtues of prudence,
May Saint Joseph Vaz intercede for us in our life’s journey to imitate our Master and Lord Jesus.
May Saint Joseph Vaz be our inspiration and model in our earthly life as we journey toward the joy of the Resurrection and the Reign of God. Amen
