Our Lady of Hope Sebastian Rale, S.J. Prayer Circle
St. Ignatius said we should work as though it all depends on us and pray as though it all depends on God. I hope these Prayer Circle intentions can be an expression of our awareness of our need for God’s grace. Each month we join with our global family in praying for Pope Francis’ prayer intention for that month. We pray also for our parish, school and other needs of our greater community and Church. Praying for our parish and world is an important ministry and one that some of us who are not able, because of time, health or other limits, to be active in other ways. Thank you for your prayers for our parish, our school, and the world.
Fr. Paul, S.J.

- As our country deals with complicated and controversial questions surrounding the Election of 2024, we pray for God’s guidance for judges and others involved in our justice system. We pray for our country and for leaders who are committed to truth and the common good. We also remember people in other nations around the world – that people holding political and economic power will use it in ways that protects our planet and its peoples. We pray to the Lord.
