28 September 2014: Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Social Justice Sunday

In your minds you must be the same as Christ Jesus

Lord Jesus, Carpenter and King,
supreme Sovereign of all men,
look with tender mercy upon the multitudes of our day
who bear the indignities of injustice everywhere.

Raise up leaders in every land
dedicated to Your standards
of order, equity, and justice.

Grant unto us, Lord Jesus,
the grace to be worthy members of Your Mystical Body,
laboring unceasingly to fulfill
our vocation in the social apostolate
of Your Church.

Sharpen our intellects to pierce the pettiness of prejudice;
to perceive the beauty
of true human brotherhood.

Guide our minds to a meaningful understanding
of the problems of the poor,
of the oppressed, of the unemployed,
of all in need of assistance anywhere.

Guide our hearts against the subtle lure of earthly things
and undue regard for those who possess them.

May we hunger and thirst after justice always.

Amen.
