    As he passed by, Jesus saw a man blind from his birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus replied, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest in him." John 9: 1-3.


Renewal Prayer for Deaf Catholic Church

by Rev. Michael Depcik, OSFS (to be said on every Friday)


Father, we ask you to look with mercy at us, your Deaf Catholic Church.


We ask you to bless us, inspire us to always love you

above all things and to love our neighbors as ourselves.


We pray to you for our bishops, our spiritual leaders.

Please bless them and give them the strength

and wisdom to guide us, their people.  Help them to recognize,

understand, and respond to our unique needs.


Please bless the priests, deacons, religious, and lay people

who serve our community.  Inspire them so that they may then

inspire all hearts of deaf people to know, love,

and serve you and your Catholic Church.


Father, we pray to you for our baptized Deaf Catholic brothers and sisters.

Please send your Holy Spirit to enkindle

and renew their hearts so that they may continue to grow spiritually

through making time for prayers, receiving sacraments,

and serving  other people.


Our young baptized Deaf Catholics are growing up in a challenging and confused world. 

Almighty God, please help them understand that the way of the world

does not give life; your way alone gives true life. 

Please touch their hearts and guide them to find your love. 

Bring them back to the Church. Put in them the desire to pray,

to receive the sacraments and to serve other people.


Holy Spirit, come and transform each of us through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Holy Mary, our Mother, pray for us.  Amen.
