Prayer for the Imprisoned

I was just chatting with a long time friend of mine and my family's and he was telling me that his wife and very new Catholic's Confirmation name is Barbarba. I went onto a site which I swear by for figuring out who is the patron of what. I checked on St. Barbara just because I was curious, and found out that one of her patronages is of the imprisoned, and on that page I found this, a beautiful prayer for prisoners written by our man, Pius XII. Being pontiff during WWII, I think this was a prayer that bore especial relevancy. Of course, there are those who are such incredible wags that they'll assert this prayer was only meant to be said for German POW's...
