Prayer on Child Protection Sunday
You asked that the little children be allowed to come to you;
for it is such as these that the Reign of God belongs.
You entrust them to the care and protection of our communities of faith.
Guide us as we strive to ensure that our Catholic communities
provide a safe environment for each child.
We pray especially for all those who have been harmed in their childhood.
Give them courage in facing the past and lead them
to your healing protection.
