Day of Prayer for Victims and Survivors of Abuse
Friday 15th February is a special day of prayer for survivors of abuse.
At a recent gathering of Irish Bishops in Knock Shrine, candles were blessed for each Diocese in the country to be lit in each Cathedral on Friday next ~ A Day of Atonement.
At the evening mass next Friday at 7.30pm, in the Cathedral the candle for the Killaloe Diocese will be lit, as we pray for all victims and survivors of abuse and our need to ask forgiveness for the whole Church
Candle of Atonement Prayer Lord, forgive us our many sins. We grieve and repent with all our hearts for having offended you, for our great failings and neglect of the young and vulnerable. We place all of those who have been hurt by the Church in any way into your loving hands and under the protection of Our Blessed Mother.
Lord, bring peace to their broken lives and show us all the way out of darkness and into the light of your Word.
May we as the people of God be more fully human, more fully Christ-like and more fully your people, that we may see the errors of the past and go forward with renewed hope and faith in Christ and in our Church.
