Submit a Prayer Intention
Archbishop Gomez will present prayer intentions at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe during the first Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City in July.
Pray With Us
God, you are the Father of the whole human race.
Your sons and daughters seek You and serve You
from out of every nation, language and culture.
Father, help us as we seek to reform
our broken immigration system and
show mercy to those who are undocumented.
Give us the courage to welcome immigrants and
celebrate the gifts they bring to our great nation —
their love for family, their faith and values,
their hard work and creativity.
We ask for the intercession of the immigrant saints of the Americas and Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas and our mother.
And we ask this through Your Son, Jesus Christ —
who was an immigrant and refugee in Egypt
and calls us to love others as we love Him.
Most Reverend José H. Gomez
Archbishop of Los Angeles
