Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for the wrongs and
sins I have committed because they offend you, my
God, who art all good and deserving of all my love.  I
firmly resolve to sin no more and avoid all the
occasions of sin with the help of you, my Lord and
the Holy Spirit,
Amen
Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, make me holy.  Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, fill me with love.  Water from the side of
Christ, wash me.  Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me, within Your wounds hide me,
never let me be parted from you.  From the snares of the
evil one protect me.  At the hour of my death call me, tell
me to come to you so that with all the saints and angels, I
may praise you for all eternity.
AMEN
Ministry Prayer for GLBT Catholics

Lord, You are my shepherd, the one who
knows my voice, recognizes me, and calls
me by name.
You gather me up, hold me close, and
feed me.
You strengthen me, when I am weak,
heal me when I am sick, and bind up my
wounds.
Lord, You are my shepherd, the one who
refreshes my soul, invites me to the table,
and welcomes me to dwell in Your house.
I am your homosexual child, baptized
into your flock, O Lord.
My family and I cry out to you for
shepherds here on earth, in our church
and among ourselves, who, like you,
know us, feed us, care for us, and invite
us to your table.
Amen

GLBT person
(acknowledgement to the MLGC office of the Archdiocese
of Los Angeles)

Thank you, Lord, for each other.  Give us
support, understanding and appreciation for
where we are in our journey.  Grant us the
serenity to understand the precious ones
you have given us and your will for them.  
Turn the darkness around us into light.
Lord, open the hearts and eyes of parents
who have abandoned their children and
bring back those special children who have
left your church.  Help all our church
leaders to show compassion in their ministry.
All loving God, we place our thoughts and
doubts, biases and viewpoints, plans and
confusion into Your hands.
Lead us in Your way.  In Your will is our
peace.
Amen
A Prayer to the The Holy Spirit for Christian Unity
By Rev. Robert Johnnene OFD
Mission Saints Sergius and Bacchus

Almighty and merciful Father, send the Holy Spirit down upon us and the
leaders of all the Christian churches to open their minds and hearts to the
truthful teachings of Your Son, Jesus Christ.  
Help them to renew and restore the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church
which he founded when the Holy Spirit descended on His Apostles that first
Pentecost.
By the Holy Spirit gather all who believe the Truth of Jesus Teachings to come
together, working together to bring about unity of the Church founded by
Christ and the Apostles. Help them to practice respect the dignity of all God’s
children throughout the entire world.
Inspire world leaders to find the means of bringing about an end to the horrors
of war, poverty, genocide and discrimination and all the other atrocities being
committed in the name of God.
Through the Holy Spirit, inspire all people to be more mindful of the needs of
others and become more generous toward the poor, aged, and sick.  
Open the minds of all to become more tolerant of the differences and diversity
created by Almighty God.
Instill deep in our hearts your truth and through the Holy Spirit guide us in our
service to you.
We ask this in the name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, our redeemer and
savior.  
AMEN
