Prayer for the People of Nepal

Pause for a moment to offer prayer for our sisters and brothers suffering in Nepal. Catholic Relief Services is among the many organizations helping to ease the suffering.

(This prayer is taken from The Roman Missal, “Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions, #34:  In Time of Earthquake”)

O God,
Who set the earth on its firm foundation,
spare those who are fearful
and show favor to those who implore You,
so that, with all dangers of earthquake entirely gone,
we may continue to experience Your mercy
and serve You in thankfulness,
safe under Your protection.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
