Impelled by the news on the radio this a.m.

When something comes up and you need to pray, the old Roman Missal always comes through:
O God, Who didst break the chains of blessed Peter the Apostle, and didst restore him unscathed to liberty:  loose the chains of Thy handmaid now in captivity, and through the merits of the same Apostle, grant also to her to escape unscathed.  Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
