Take a sneak peek at this prayer featured in Catholic Mobilizing Network's new faith formation guide, Harm, Healing, and Human Dignity, available May 2019.
"Lord, I am a broken person. In my humanity, I have
sinned, against you and against others. My actions have
consequences beyond what I can fully know, and beyond
what I may feel able to admit in this moment.
Help me to take responsibility for my actions. As I recall the past and
look to the future, give me the courage to seek forgiveness
from those I have harmed.
When confronted with the pain I have caused others, help me to listen with humility and
do what I can to make it right again. In my brokenness,
give me courage to encounter others who have caused harm
with compassion and to seek justice and mercy in the path
