FROM: The Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission




Dear Reverend Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers and Sisters:


Greetings in the Lord!


The Archbishop of Manila, His Excellency Most Rev. Luis Antonio G. Tagle, requests that we pray kneeling down the following Oratio Imperata in our Masses (after the Post Communion Prayer), Holy Hours, celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours and the praying of the rosary.


Thank you very much.


ORATIO IMPERATA PARA SA PAGHINTO NG ULAN AT BAHA


Panginoon, sa hudyat ng iyong salita
sumusunod ang hangin at dagat.
Iunat mo ang iyong mapagpalang kamay
upang huminto na ang ulan at pagbaha.


Lingapin mo ang aming mga kapatid
na ngayo’y giniginaw, nagugutom at lubog sa baha.
Pawiin mo ang lahat ng aming mga takot at pangamba.
Imulat mo ang aming mga mata
at buksan ang aming mga puso
upang makatugon kami sa pangangailangan ng bawa’t isa.
Amen.


Mahal na Birhen ng Guadalupe, ipanalangin mo kami.

San Roque, ipanalangin mo kami.


ORATIO IMERATA FOR DELIVERANCE FROM CALAMITIES


Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to You
in gratitude for the wonders of creation of which we are part,
for Your providence in sustaining us in our needs,
and for Your wisdom that guides the course of the universe.


We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation.
We have not been good stewards of Nature.
We have confused Your command to subdue the earth.
The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing,
and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference.


Typhoons, heavy rains and floods occur in increasing number and intensity.
We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins.
We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions
be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man-made.


We beseech You to inspire us all to grow
into responsible stewards of Your creation,
and generous neighbors to those in need.
Amen.
