Prayer Card


Those who are suffering need our material support, and to-date the Order has provided more than $4.4 million in direct assistance. They also need our prayers.   Members and others are encouraged to pray this prayer - composed by Archbishop Lori - regularly. As council chaplains conduct blessing  services for Solidarity Crosses - more than 1100 councils have  purchased crosses so far - this prayer can be part of those services.   We will let you know as soon as the cards are printed including information on how to order in quantity.


Vivat Jesus

OGod of all the nations,

the One God who is and was and always will be,

in your providence you willed that your Church

be united to the suffering of your Son.

Look with mercy on your servants

who are persecuted for their faith in you.

Grant them perseverance and courage

to be worthy imitators of Christ.

Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations

to work for peace among all peoples.

May your Spirit open conversion

for those who contradict your will,

that we may live in harmony.

Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom,

and to always seek your will in our lives.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Prayer composed by Archbishop William E. Lori, Supreme Chapla
