The Mass Collect for Independence Day is given below to help orient our prayer today. Pray for our country and her leaders.
We have much to be grateful for, much to ask for forgiveness and much hope for the future.
“Father of all nations and ages, we recall the day when our country claimed its place among the family of nations; for what has been achieved we give you thanks, for the work that still remains we ask your help.”
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
All Saints and Blesseds of the USA, pray for us.
