In today’s generation wherein people are mostly connected 24/7, it can be quite surprising how everyone has been empowered to use their voice, but not all have embraced their capacity to listen. (Read: CBCP Releases Consecration Prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
In these trying times, may each one of us find it in our hearts to empathize and listen to those who are suffering. Heed the Pope’s call and reach out to God in prayer so that we may overcome the culture of indifference that hinders us from understanding one another.
A Prayer to Overcome Indifference
Lord, all too often, we turn away from the world’s problems.
It is easier to see only what is around us: our lives, homes, and challenges.
Help us to see with Your eyes, and help us to dream Your dream.
Guide us to become people of solidarity and action so that peace can become a reality. Amen.
