Prayer: Lord, help us to see those with special needs through Your eyes. So often we are tempted to value someone's life by what they can do and accomplish. Please help us to see that every person is valuable not because of what they can do but because of who they are. Your love for them gave them profound dignity. Show us also, Lord, their pure hearts. Hearts that could possibly enter heaven before us. Forgive us, sweet Jesus, and teach us to love as You love. We ask this in Your holy name, Amen.
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
