AUGUST 1st, 2014 Worldwide Day of Prayer and Adoration:
From Rorate Caeli

AUGUST 1st, 2014 Worldwide Day of Prayer and Adoration:

As we announced last week, tomorrow [August 1] will be a Day of Adoration and Prayer around the world for the persecuted Christians of Iraq, Syria, and the Middle East. We know that it has spread from the Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) to a great number of churches around the world. Please, try to take part in one of the many public acts of intercession for the safety of our brothers expelled from their homes and cities, maimed, and for consolation for the families of the many martyrs.

If you absolutely cannot go to one of these public acts, or to personal time of adoration before the Lord -- and even if you do go, but have some spare time and wish to join others around the world on this special day, offers an almost round-the-clock opportunity to do so.

The special live schedule for this Friday is the following, beginning in a few hours in Fribourg, Switzerland all the way to evening adoration in Guadalajara, Mexico. The times are all in EDT (US/Canada Eastern Daylight Time). For GMT (UTC), add 4 hours; for London, UK and Ireland (Summer Time), add 5 hours; for Rome and most of the European Mainland (Summer Time), add 6 hours; for Eastern Australia, add 14 hours.

    3:00 AM Low Mass from Fribourg, Switzerland followed by Holy Hour
    9:00 AM Low Mass from Sarasota, Florida
    12:30 PM Rebroadcast of early Mass and Holy Hour from Fribourg
    6:30 PM Low Mass from Sarasota, followed by Holy Hour
    8:00 PM Solemn Mass with veneration of relic from Guadalajara, Mexico
    9:30 PM Holy Hour from Guadalajara
    10:30 PM Vigil (Adoración Nocturna) before the Blessed Sacrament from Guadalajara*
    * The Adoracion Nocturna will be broadcast until the Mass begins from Fribourg at 3 AM (ET).
A Prayer:

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.
