Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
God fulfils all our needs and is the source of everything we have and all that we are. We ask Him to listen to our prayers of intercession, for we know that without Him we can do nothing.
We pray for the Church that it may radiate the example of Christ through its leaders and peoples and encourage all to be called to take on the new garments of life in Christ and so be clothed in love, truth, peace and goodness, Lord in your mercy
We pray that we may be responsive to the invitation of the Lord, remembering that nothing is impossible to God and that there is nothing we cannot master with the help of the one who gives us strength, Lord in your mercy
We pray for the efforts of CAFOD and all aid agencies. May we be generous in giving of our time, our prayers and monetary support so that their work on our behalf with the poor, the needy, the down-trodden and disadvantaged may continue, Lord in your mercy
We pray for all those who have died recently and those whose anniversaries fall at this time. May He who destroyed death and who wipes away every tear lead them through the valley of darkness into the radiance of His glorious resurrection, Lord in your mercy
We turn to Our Lady, Queen of the Rosary, and ask her to intercede with us as we say: Hail MaryLet us pause to meet the Lord in a moment of silent prayer.
Heavenly Father, Shepherd of your people, in your love and compassion hear our prayers and make us always eager to serve you in faith, hope and love now and forevermore. Amen
