have special mercy on the souls
of the young boys who were sent down
into America's dirty dangerous coal mines
in the 1800's.
give specials rewards
to all these "little men"
who were forced into this inhumane child labor.
smile on all the girls and boys, children,
all over the world who in former days and now,
are robbed of their innocence,
their childhoods sacrificed
to the benefit, convenience, financial benefit,
and shame, of adults.
all these little children,
past, present and future,
robbed of their childhood,
to come in safety unto to You,
and please hold them very close
in the eternal radiant happiness
of Your loving Sacred Heart.
