Jesus asked them, “How many loaves 

do you have?” They replied, “Seven.” 

He ordered the crowd to sit down

on the ground. Then, taking the seven

loaves he gave thanks, broke them, 

and gave them to his disciples to

distribute, and they distributed them

to the crowd. They also had a few fish. 

He said the blessing over them and

ordered them distributed also. 

They ate and were satisfied. They

picked up the fragments left over

sevenbaskets. There were about four

thousand people. 

Mark 8:1-10

Human Trafficking

Prayer for an End to Human Trafficking

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you across the world in prayer to pray for the abolishment of human trafficking in all its forms. Save the victims, help them to receive the proper guidance, counseling, shelter and healing that is needed for them to overcome this violent act, we humbly pray. Flood the hearts of those committing these acts, so they may come to know Your Grace. Thank you, Lord, for your angels here on earth who serve and protect these vulnerable peoples. Through the intercession of St. Josephine Bakhita, Patroness of charity and patience, bring us the spirit of wisdom and love. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, be our protector. Grant us the courage, strength, and ability to fight successfully to end the scourge of human trafficking. We ask this through,

Christ Our Lord. Amen. Hail Mary …
