Let us pray for all who suffer from the lack of peace in the world – for all victims of violence and their families.Through the intercession of Our Blessed Lady who stood at the foot of the cross, bring peace, healing and reconciliation to their hearts and their lives. Lord in your mercy
For all who have died in the last year, both family and friends and members of our parish and for all those who no one remembers; may the Christ Child welcome them into his heavenly kingdom. Lord in your mercy
Let us turn to Our Lady, Mary Mother of God and mother of us all, to intercede for us as we say, Hail Mary…
Let us pray for our own intentions in silence.
