Dear God, we ask you to help all those who suffer abuse.
Help them find healing and peace in their life. May Maria Goretti, who was strengthened by Your Grace, join us in prayer for the healing of all victims of abuse, particularly those abused as children or young adults.
Lord God, grant us your Love that we might reach out to them in Your Name with hope in times of trial. As Maria prayed for her attacker, grant us the grace to pray for the true conversion of all who abuse, that they will seek Your Mercy through prayer and penance.
Loving God, pour into our hearts and lives your healing Spirit so that the sacredness of every human person will be respected and protected as the precious image of God.
Help us to live in the peace which Maria Goretti found in Christ and in the love of his mother Mary. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (https://www.mgoretti.org/prayers)
