Pray for those oppressed by “evil spirits,” suffering from any kind of slavery—addictions, greed, selfishness, despair—that Jesus’ saving word may come to them and deliver them so that they may enjoy the freedom of the children of God. Jesus comes to rebuke the forces of evil and chaos—not only in the world, but in our lives. He wants to make us holy in body and spirit.

"The joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the people of our time, especially of those who are poor or afflicted, are the joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the followers of Christ as well. Nothing that is genuinely human fails to find an echo in their hearts. For theirs is a community of people united in Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit in their pilgrimage towards the Father's kingdom."
The Second Vatican Council, Gaudium et Spes
