Pray for those affected by the Boston explosion



Our dearest Mother, 
turn upon us also, 
wretched sinners that we are, 
thy merciful eyes, 
and graciously accept our humble and confident prayers. 
Aid us in all our spiritual and temporal necessities, 
deliver us from all evil 
and especially from sin, 
which is the greatest evil, 
and from all danger of falling into it; 
obtain for us from thy Son Jesus 
every blessing of which thou seest we stand in need 
both in soul and body, 
and especially the greatest blessing of all, 
which is Divine grace. 
Comfort our spirits, 
troubled and afflicted in the midst of the many dangers that threaten us, 
and the countless miseries and misfortunes that beset us on every side. 
This we ask through that immense joy 
which filled thy pure soul 
in the glorious Resurrection of thy Divine Son. 

Obtain tranquillity for Holy Church, 
help and comfort for her visible Head, 
the Sovereign Pontiff, 
peace for Christian princes, 
refreshment in their pains for the Holy Souls in Purgatory; 
for sinners, the forgiveness of their sins, 
and for the just, perseverance in well-doing. 
Receive us all, our most tender Mother, 
under thy loving and mighty protection, 
that we may be enabled to live virtuously, 
die holily and attain to everlasting happiness in Heaven.

Amen.

Pray for the souls of those who died and their families
