Prayer of World Youth Day 2016

"God, merciful Father,

in your Son, Jesus Christ, you have revealed your love

and poured it out upon us in the Holy Spirit, the Comforter.

We entrust to you today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman".

We entrust to you in a special way

young people of every language, people and nation:

guide and protect them as they walk the complex paths of the world today

and give them the grace to reap abundant fruits

from their experience of the Krakow World Youth Day.

Heavenly Father,

grant that we may bear witness to your mercy.

Teach us how to convey the faith to those in doubt,

hope to those who are discouraged,

love to those who feel indifferent,

forgiveness to those who have done wrong

and joy to those who are unhappy.

Allow the spark of merciful love

that you have enkindled within us

become a fire that can transform hearts

and renew the face of the earth.

Mary, Mother of Mercy, pray for us.

St. John Paul II, pray for us.

My dream

Thy will be done…even on The Voice!

"My final and most important thanks go to the One who is up there," she said to applause.
She said her presence on The Voice wasn't to walk away a winner or a music star, but to show people a different kind of victory: "My dream is to recite the Our Father together, maybe we can all hold each other's hands and pray. I want Jesus to come right here inside!"
