O lord, we know that you are saddened when your children reject you.
Please forgive them, and lead them to the everlasting light of your Church, which you have preserved through the centuries.
They know not what the do, O Lord.  please forgive and heal their ignorance.

Lord Have Mercy, Lord Have Mercy, Lord Have Mercy

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.    Amen.

Amen. Lord, have mercy.

Light of the World,
whoever follows You will never walk in darkness, even if they lose the power of sight, nor even if darkness fills their lives.
Send the Light of Your Awakening Grace on those who have become lost in the darkness spread by the enemy of souls that they may find their way back to You, our true and natural Home, You Who are the Way, the Truth and the Life. By the prayers of Your All Holy Mother, the Theotokos, of Your Forerunner and Baptist, the Choir of the Apostles whose voices reached the ends of the Cosmos to proclaim You, the Martyrs and Confessors who stood firm with You, and all the Saints who form the Cloud of Witness, of Your Holy Angels and Archangels who continually sing Your Glory, and by the prayers of Your Church on Earth, our Fathers and Mothers known only to You by whose prayers the world stands on its feet today. Forgive us Lord, we who are called by Your Name, for our failures, our sins, weaknesses and scandals, and let no one be lost because of us. May our Love for one another mark us as Your followers, and may all come to know You, the Resurrection and the Life.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy on those who reject you for they know not what they do.

Lord, have mercy on those who reject you, and also on us who accept you in word but not in deed.

Lord, open their eyes, hearts and minds to the Truth!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell, especially those in most need of thy mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

"Lord have mercy."

May God have mercy on me, for although I profess His goodness and argue for His existence, I deny Him by my sinful life and my unrighteous actions.
