Prayer to St. Maria Goretti

Our Parish Prayer to St. Maria Goretti

Saint Maria Goretti,
Little Saint of Great Mercy,
Thank you for being our parish patron,
and a model of how to live the Gospel.
We pray that our hearts may be as
merciful and forgiving as yours.
Please intercede for us to Christ
that we may have the grace and
strength to do as you did---to choose to forgive.
Help us to forgive those who have hurt us.
Help us to ask for forgiveness
from those whom we have hurt.
May all our relationships be rich in mercy.
Saint Maria Goretti, intercede for us
that healings may be granted,
and that Christ’s mercy and love
may go out to all the world
to bring about peace.
We ask all this in faith,
through Christ our Lord.
St. Maria Goretti, pray for us.
