Lord Jesus, You willingly suffered a painful death for the sake of my salvation. Today I join my pain with yours—my illness, my loneliness and my heartache as well as my physical suffering; all for the sake of the souls in purgatory and for the Fruitfulness of St Mary and St Joseph Parishes. Send your Holy Spirit on all members of these parishes and those who attend these parishes. Bless them. Bless their ministries, bless all our families and our priests. I also pray that more holy priests and religious will come into your service from these parishes. Have pity on your servant, Lord, listen to my prayer, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.
