God of mercy,
we bless You in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who came to him. Give Your strength to (name the person), one of Your children, enfold him/her in Your love and restore him/her to the freedom of Godís children.
look with compassion on all those who have lost their health and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of Your unfailing mercy, strengthen them in the work of recovery, and help them to resist all temptation.
To those who care for them, grant patience and understanding and a love that perseveres.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
'Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance. There is something so dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power' .........Cardinal John Henry Newman.
