Prayer to St. Jerome Emiliani
O St. Jerome Emiliani,
our country is in such need of your powerful intercession before the throne of God.
So many children are orphans of broken homes,
some are missing and others have been used for evil purposes on our city streets.
Even worse than this,
people are killing children before they are even born.
Inspire parents to adopt orphans.
Help us to have your fervor for all children,
especially those in most need.
Finally, we ask you to transform us into children
so that we may one day enter the Kingdom of Heaven
and with you praise the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever.
