Pope Francis Reveals the Prayer He Prays Every Night Before Bed

“In the evening, before going to bed,” he told the crowd in Rome, “I pray this short prayer.”

First, Pope Francis says this: “Lord, if you want, you can make me clean.” Then he prays five Our Fathers, one for each of Christ’s wounds on the Cross (both feet, both hands, and his side). He does this, he explained, “because Jesus cleansed us with his wounds.”

Simple, yet profound! And anyone can do it, as Francis pointed out: “If I can do it, so can you in your home.”

Think you might start praying this every night with the Pope?

Here’s a video of him explaining it:

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
