Lord, remember all the little ones of Christ, the sick, the poor, the dying and all those who have no one to pray for them. Remember all the street people without names who ask your mercy each day by their begging and vulunerable way of life. Grant them the consolation of knowing you through your visitations in the everyday moments of life. Grant an increase of faith, hope and love to all the faithful, especially your little ones. Amen
