Sixth Sunday of Easter (B)



Jesus has called us to love one another as he has loved us. We make our petitions for our country and for our world to God our Father, who is infinite love.


Let us pray for the Church: that all Christians may live up to the Lord’s commandment and in this way, show forth to the world in word and deed, the Church’s concern for everyone:  (pause)  …  Lord hear us.

May all Christian leaders seek an end to their divisions, not trusting in their own efforts alone, but in the spirit of God’s love moving among them as they are guided into the fullness of truth and unity: (pause) … Lord hear us.

May our political leaders make the underprivileged their special care. May they exercise a special responsibility for the aged, the infirm, the terminally ill, the poor, the homeless and the jobless. May they be assisted by our encouragement, prayers and goodwill and may they strive to mould our nation into a caring and mutually supportive community:  (pause)  … Lord hear us.

Let us pray that those who are not baptised may recognise the Spirit at work just as Saint Peter did in Cornelius and his household. May we appreciate that God’s Spirit is not confined to his Church, but is to be found wherever people seek sincerely to do his will:  (pause)  …  Lord hear us.

We pray with Mary, Mother of the Risen Lord: Hail Mary … etc.

We pray in silence for our own needs to God who loves us as a father.


God our Father, because you are love itself, we trust and believe that your hear our prayers and answer them. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
