Prayer for Children who Have Left the Catholic Church
“Watchful Father, You gave me the responsibility to bring up my children in the Catholic faith, which has the fullness of Your Son’s teaching and the riches of His seven sacraments. I pray for my children and any person who has left the Church founded by Your Son, Jesus. May they return to the one true Church in which all are one in You. With Your Son’s death I unite my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in preparation for any of my sins which may have led anyone away from You and Your Son’s Church. Through the merits of Your Son’s sacrifice on the cross, may they be brought back to Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Monica, pray for us.”
