    The Novena for the Abuse Crisis~ Accountability, Transparency and Healing

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Father in Heaven, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

    Holy Spirit, comfort us, give us clarity, and bring light to this darkness and evil.

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.


    Saint Peter, pray for the Church, that it may be re-built, healed, and made holy.

    St. Charles Lwanga and St. Monica, pray for the abused, the survivors and for justice.

    St. Catherine of Siena, pray for reform and restoration of the clergy.

    St. John Vianney, pray for the holiness of priests and bishops.

    St. Benedict, pray that this evil be cast out of the Church.

    St. Anthony, pray for us to find the way forward.

    St. Paul, pray for the bishops that they may be fearless in confronting other bishops.

    St. Augustine, pray for true repentance and transparency.

    St. Dymphna, pray for consolation for the heartache, depression and anxiety this evil has caused.

    Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us!

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
