A Call to Prayer and Action
Monday July 18th to Monday, August 15th
The National Black Catholic Congress (NBCC) joins the nation in mourning over the tragedies in Baton Rouge, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, and Dallas. As we commend to the Lord those who have died, we pray for the consolation of all who are grieving.
O God, who gave one origin to all peoples and willed to gather from them one family for yourself, fill all hearts, we pray, with the fire of your love and kindle in them a desire for the just advancement of their neighbor, that, through the good things which you richly bestow upon all, each human person may be brought to perfection, every division may be removed, and equity and justice may be established in human society. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
- Collect, Votive Mass for the Progress of Peoples, The Roman Missal
In addition, Friday is a day of penance for Catholics throughout the year. During this same period, we invite all Catholics to make a sacrifice of your choosing on Fridays to accompany our prayers for justice with acts of reparation.
