We pray to God our Father for all the graces for the Church and the world, through Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
We pray for the Church, the sign of Salvation: may she always point the way to the person of Jesus Christ, who alone is the Saviour of the world: (pause) .. Lord hear us
Let us pray for the leaders of our society: may they never consider themselves as the most important members of society, but see themselves rather as servants in the world of which Christ alone is Lord: (pause) … Lord hear us.
For those who are worried or in great distress: may Christ’s words in today’s Gospel: “Do not let your hearts be troubled, trust in God still and trust in me”, console and encourage them in their time of trial: (pause) … Lord hear us.
We pray for an increase in vocations: may young men and women be encouraged to offer themselves as priests and religious for the service of God’s people: (pause) … Lord hear us.
We pray with Mary, Mother of the Messiah, as we say together: Hail Mary…etc.
In silence now, we pray to our heavenly Father for our own personal intentions.
God our Father, may we be one with you by following your Son, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We make this prayer and all our prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
