A prayer for the victims and for France from the Shrine of Louis and Zelie Martin at Alencon

Attacks in Paris - Call to Prayer - Pray For Paris

translated from the Facebook page "Louis et Zelie Martin d'Alencon" with thanks

[Note that, although St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Joan of Arc are secondary co-patrons of France, the principal patron of France is the Blessed Virgin].

"Lord, we come to You in prayer and we entrust to You our brothers and sisters, victims of hatred, and their families.  We pray to You today through the intercession of the Queen of Peace, our Mother, for France.   Protect her!  Bless her!  Inspire our leaders! 

Lord, give us always especially to have trust in You, particularly in difficult situations, and never to doubt that you are the God of Love, our Father, who loves us and wants only our happiness!

Maranatha.  Come Lord Jesus! Amen !"

Saint Zelie: "The best thing to do is to put everything into the hands of God and to wait for events in peace and surrender to His will.  That's what I will try to do.". (CF 45)

Saints Louis and Zelie, pray for us, for our families and for France!

Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us!"
