Intercessions 7th Sunday of the Year 18 th February 2007

Priest: God is our compassionate Father
who knows each of us by name.
He sent his only son to heal and restore us.
We place before him all our needs.

Reader: 1. Let us pray for the Church in her ministry of forgiveness
that she may always welcome repentant sinners
and, through the sacrament of Reconciliation,
lead them to grace reconciled with God and his people.
Lord hear us

2. Let us pray for young people who are involved
with gang culture, addiction and violence.
May the Lord help us to show them
a richer and more meaningful way of life.
Lord hear us

3. We pray for all prisoners and we ask the Lord
to give them the means to reconcile themselves with society.
We pray for their dependents
Lord hear us

4. May the Lord console those of our parish community
who are grieving for the death of loved ones.
Through their mourning may they come
to strengthen their faith in the resurrection.
Lord hear us

Let us turn to Mary, full of compassion and love. Hail Mary.

Let us pray for a few moments in silence.

Priest: O God and Father of us all,
may your Spirit give us the grace to love as you do,
to love without expecting any return.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
