According to the Sacramentary, “In case of serious public need, the local Ordinary may permit or decree the addition of a special intention.”
Let us pray, dear friends,
for the victims of sexual abuse,
in particular for children who were abused by clergy;
that God may grant to those whose innocence was violated
the grace of healing and new life.
Silent prayer. Then the priest sings or says:
be the refuge and guardian
of all who suffer from abuse and violence.
Heal their wounds of body, soul and spirit;
rescue them from shame and guilt;
and refresh them with your love.
