A Prayer for When We Struggle with the Church
My God, you are infinite Mercy, you are Love itself. I love you, and I believe in you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And because I believe in you, I believe everything you have revealed. I believe what you have revealed about this great mystery which is the Church. You know how I struggle. Help my unbelief. Help me to rediscover the beauty, and goodness, and holiness within the Church, which is sometime obscured and hidden by the moral failings of its members. Help me to love the Church not in spite of but precisely because of her many human weaknesses and failures. Allow me to be your instrument to help heal your Church. Amen.
Excerpt from Hurting in the Church: A Way Forward for Wounded Catholics by Father Thomas Berg
