APOSTOLIC JOURNEY OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
TO COLOMBIA

(6-11 SEPTEMBER 2017)

Prayer to the black Christ of Bojayá*

 

O black Christ of Bojayá,
who remind us of your passion and death;
together with your arms and feet
they have torn away your children
who sought refuge in you.

O black Christ of Bojayá,
who look tenderly upon us
and in whose face is serenity;
your heart beats
so that we may be received in your love.

O black Christ of Bojayá,
Grant us to commit ourselves to restoring your body.
May we be your feet that go forth to encounter
our brothers and sisters in need;
your arms to embrace
those who have lost their dignity;
your hands to bless and console
those who weep alone.

Make us witnesses
to your love and infinite mercy.

Amen.

 

*Reconciliation Liturgy (Las Malocas Park, Villavicencio - Friday, 8 September 2017)
