POPE FRANCIS
"At night, before going to sleep I pray this short prayer: 'Lord, if you want, you can purify me.' And I pray five Our Fathers; one for each one of Jesus' gashes because Jesus has cleansed us with His sores. This is what I do, you can do this as well in your home and say, 'Lord, if you want, you can purify and clean me; and think of the wounds of Jesus and say the Our Father for each one and Jesus will always listen to us.”
