Prayer Offered for January 25, 2024

God of mercy and compassion, on this International Holocaust Remembrance weekend, once again we are reminded how man’s inhumanity to man makes countless millions mourn.

We ask for the grace to recognize the destructive prejudices in ourselves that lead to the dehumanization of those we deem different from us.

We ask for the grace to overcome the irrational fears that cause us to misjudge others leading to violence and irreparable harm.

We ask for the grace to live each day with an attitude of compassion, creating an atmosphere of hospitality and welcome where all can thrive and contribute to the common good.

May every story shared be an impetus to action that ensures that the words “never again” are more than pious sentiment. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
