Good Friday Prayer for Cuba

O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood
for the redemption and salvation of our souls,
look down upon us here gathered together in remembrance
of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death,
fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace,
sanctify our toil,
give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our daily bread,
sweeten our sufferings, bless our families,
and to the nations so sorely afflicted,
grant Thy peace, which is the only true peace,
so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.
