Prayerful Concerns of Our Parish Community – Trinity Sunday

May 27, 2024 | Prayers of the Faithful

We share these Prayers of the Faithful from Trinity Sunday (May 25-26, 2024) Masses:

God, we cannot understand how you are. We come today to praise you and thank you for your care for us as our creator and the creator of all, as our brother and savior, and as the very breath we breathe  — and the inspiration of our hearts for your great desire to be in relationship with us.

We pray for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit in the relationships in our lives, that we might know and express gratitude for our blessed and healthy relationships and are given healing and honesty for those relationships which are troubled or broken. We pray to the Lord.

This week we pray especially intensely for our children who are being Confirmed and receiving First Eucharist. May their lives be led in paths of goodness; may they always hunger for God. We pray to the Lord.

It is also Memorial Day weekend. We place before you those who have died in service of our country. Inspire us to honor their memory by working hard for peace and justice in our world. We pray to the Lord.

This past week Pope Francis urged us not to be indifferent. Lord, we ask you to open our hearts to the pain and suffering of so many of our brothers and sisters. Give us the wisdom to reject the whisperings of the evil spirit which say, “there is nothing you can do to change things.” We pray to the Lord.

Here in this sacred place, a place of celebration and of struggle, we rest, content or cautious, to know your presence, hear your Word, sense your Spirit, welcoming us, and waiting, once again. We pray to the Lord.

Today we remember those who once sat in these seats, experienced your care for them here, responded to you in the best way they could. Faithful God, fill them now with the completeness of life. We especially comment to you:

4:30 PM The People of the Parish, both Living & Deceased

7:30 AM Jimmie & Kay Nappi by Robert & Linda

9:30 AM Barbara Goodwin by her Husband Terry & Family

5:00 PM Frances DiPhilippo by Patty Aceto and Families

We pray to the Lord.

We entrust these and all our prayers and your whole world in all its splendor and pain to your loving care, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
