Preparatory prayer

 Preparatory prayer for our Parish Retreat.

Merciful Jesus, grant that the visitation time
of your, holy image of mercy, in our parish
will bear abundant fruit in the life of all families
and of all persons.
O Lord, transform us completely into your mercy
and make us a living reflection of you.
May your incomprehensible mercy, O God,
pass through our hearts and souls to others.
Help us that our eyes be merciful,
that we never suspect others
or judge them by appearances,
but see what is beautiful in them,
upholding them in who they are.
Help us Lord, that our hearing be merciful,
listening and responding
to the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters.
Help us that our language be merciful;
that we never speak negatively about our brothers and sisters;
may our words create a world
where trust, comfort and forgiveness reigns.
Help us oh Lord, that our hands be merciful;
may they be instruments of good
serving my neighbour,
taking upon myself
the heavier and more difficult work.
Help us that our feet be merciful,
pointing in the direction of my neighbour in need;
walking with them in their suffering and pain.
May resting be but a strengthening
to serve others.
Help us oh Lord, that our hearts be merciful,
that we feel the sufferings of the other,
that conscious of injustice
we will with compassion and mercy
work towards equality, dignity, peace and unity.
May our hearts, open to your mercy
respond to all people even those
who will abuse our care.
Merciful Jesus, transform us into yourself.
You can do all.   Amen.
