‘Our Faith Is in Danger’: Singapore Catholics Pray for 200 Years of Catholicism

Heavenly Father, Your Son commissioned His apostles
to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Our founding
missionaries left home and country so that we in
Singapore may receive the Good News and Your loving
salvation. Thank You for this gift of faith, and for all those
who laboured to keep it alive and burning these
two hundred years.
Lord Jesus, our faith is in danger of becoming irrelevant
because of secularism, materialism, individualism and
relativism. Grant our communities a renewed missionary
zeal and courage to proclaim Your name and Lordship.
Send forth Your Spirit, O Lord, to renew Your people with
the conviction and courage of our early missionaries.
Rekindle our faith so that we can be beacons of light in a
world darkened by sin, hopelessness, and ignorance.
Protect us from the snares of the evil one and grant us
the grace to remain faithful to You.
May our families be models of love and unity; our
workplaces be sanctuaries for justice and integrity; truth
and charity be taught in our classrooms; parishes live
out their mission in communion; the poor, sick, and
abandoned see the face of God in us, and may peace and
harmony reign among peoples of every race, language
and religion in our land.
Blessed Mother, you were the first disciple and
evangeliser to announce Jesus as Saviour to the world.
Intercede and grant us your maternal guidance and
protection as we navigate the uncertain future.
Father, may Your love and grace
ignite our hearts and lead us to launch a new era of faith,
so that we may once again be a more vibrant, evangelising
and missionary Church. We ask this through our Lord Jesus
Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever. Amen.
