Obligatory Prayer against Calamities

May 11, 2014

Good Shepherd Sunday

Circular 2014-15

RE:  OBLIGATORY PRAYER against CALAMITIES

Dear brothers in the priestly ministry, men and women in consecrated life, brothers and sisters in Christ:

At all times we must pray and invoke the protection of God against every evil and against all troubles. We have been forewarned by experts and scientists that the rest of the year 2014 may be challenging months for the country bringing exceptionally strong typhoons, rains and winds. Let us turn to prayer and beg the Lord for deliverance and protection.

Invoking my authority as head pastor and primary intercessor of the Church in Lingayen Dagupan, I am obliging everyone in our archdiocese to pray the enclosed prayer against calamities and disasters starting May 15, 2014, Memorial of San Isidro Labrador until September 29, 2014, the Feast of the Archangels, in all Masses, after the Liturgy of the Hours and before the first class period in all our Catholic schools.

We cannot control the wrath of nature but we believe that God has power over all creation. Even now, we claim from the hands of Our Lady of Manaoag her motherly protection for her children in Pangasinan.

I enjoin everyone concerned to observe this mandate to pray.

Sincerely yours,

+SOCRATES B. VILLEGAS

Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan

ORATIO IMPERATA

In the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan

To be prayed BEFORE the Post Communion Prayer

In all Masses from May 15, 2014, Memorial of San Isidro

Until September 29, 2014, Feast of the Archangels

Leader:

Almighty God, Lord of the universe, Creator of everything, we come to you seeking your divine protection as we face our fears and confront the threats that cause us anxiety.

After every invocation let us say

“DELIVER YOUR PEOPLE LORD”.

From strong typhoons

From relentless rains

From destructive earthquakes

From drought and pests

From deadly floods and storm surges

From red tides and fish kills

From deadly lightning

From violence and wars

From corruption and sin

From criminality and terrorism

From selfishness and indifference

Leader:

Divine Jesus, you calmed the storms and walked over the waters. Give us fine weather. Shield us from distress. Drive away from our land all calamities and disasters of nature. We entrust ourselves you now and forever.

Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag, pray for us.
