Prayerful Concerns of Our Parish Community: 13th Sunday Ordinary Time
Each week we share the Prayers of the Faithful from the prior weekend in hopes that they are helpful to you throughout the week in your personal reflections, prayers, and conversations with God.
Prayers of the Faithful: 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time June 25-26. 2022
Jesus touched people and invited them to join him through everyday encounters; so he invites us, each day. As we pray for those around us, we ask, too, for the gift to recognize these daily invitations and respond.
Bless and protect Pope Francis. Enable all Christian leaders and people to be signs of welcome and healing, of the love of Christ’s Sacred Heart, not judgement or rejection, we pray to the Lord.
For public officials here and everywhere, that they work to build up the human family in justice and peace, we pray to the Lord.
For Javier Campos and Joaquin Mora, Jesuit priests, and their guide Pedro Palma, murdered this past week in Mexico – and for all victims of violence and the drug trade, we pray to the Lord.
Let us not forget those suffering in the destructive war in the Ukraine and other places where people are being oppressed. God, help our suffering sisters and brothers, and help us to see how we can do more than pray and feel sorry for them, we pray to the Lord.
That each of us may take our baptismal commitment to Jesus seriously, that our faith may be really shown in the way we think and act, that being a people of the Eucharist makes a practical difference in our lives, we pray to the Lord.
For those who risk their lives, their reputations, their careers by speaking and acting the truth, we pray to the Lord.
For those who have run the race and kept the faith, that they now be united to God. At this liturgy we especially remember:
4:30 PM Settimo Trivellin
7:30 AM Jody Rafferty Nappi
9:30 AM Joseph Falcone
5:00 PM St. Joseph For the People of the Parish both Living & Deceased
We pray to the Lord
Lord God, you have set us on the way of discipleship. As we journey together we ask you to answer our prayers and help us to be your hands and heart in our world. We make these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
