FSSP sets August 1 day of prayer for persecuted Middle East Christians

Readers of this blog are encouraged to follow the initiative of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in setting aside this coming Friday, August 1, as a day of prayer and penance on behalf of the suffering and persecuted Christians of Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Via the blog sidebar of (non-FSSP) Father John Zuhlsdorf, here is a prayer for the suffering Church suitable for offering on August 1 or any time:

Grant unto thy Church, we beseech Thee, O merciful God, that She, being gathered together by the Holy Ghost, may be in no wise troubled by attack from Her foes. O God, who by sin art offended and by penance pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of Thy people making supplication unto Thee, and turn away the scourges of Thine anger which we deserve for our sins. Almighty and Everlasting God, in whose Hand are the power and the government of every realm: look down upon and help the Christian people that the heathen nations who trust in the fierceness of their own might may be crushed by the power of Thine Arm. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.  Amen.
