A Prayer for our Church from the Council of Florence (1439 A.D.)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ… Who comforts us in all our tribulation. Seeing His Church buffeted about by strong whirlwinds, sometimes at the hands of those who are outside, at other times at the hands of those within, deigns in many ways every day to console and strengthen her so that she may be able to breathe freely in the midst of her troubles and to rise more robust to resist.” — The Council of Florence (Session 8, November 22, 1439).
