Haiti: Notre Dame Du Perpetuel Secours


Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mother of the people of Haiti and our Mother, in selfless love you mourned the broken Body of Jesus your Son as you held Him in your arms at the foot of His Cross. It is His image and likeness we see in the dead men, women and children of Haiti. Through your prayers and intercession beseech for us the grace to also embrace them through our spiritual and material gifts.

Mary of Sorrows it is Jesus, your Son, for whom we weep as we suffer in union with your trapped, wounded and dying children in the ruins of Haiti. Beseech for them the grace of a deep Faith which gives to all the true freedom and life of the children of God.

Mary, Mother of Grace, it is in union with Jesus Christ crucified, your Son, who brings good out of every evil, that many souls around the world are reaching out to aid, to comfort, to heal and to rescue your children in Haiti.

Let us ever see the suffering holy face of your Son in the eyes of every suffering person. Let us always hear the voice of your Son calling out to us through every person in need, in Haiti and everywhere.

Amen.
