My brothers and sisters, let us join together to pray for the needs of our Church, our country and ourselves, forgetting not the many wants of all mankind.
For his Holiness Pope Benedict XV1 and for the bishops of the church that together with the leaders of all the world’s religions they will guide us with tolerance and respect for others, and so search together for ways of peace between nations. Lord, in your mercy
At this harvest time we pray for all who work on the land, may their labour be blessed by God and may they be given suitable weather for the growth and harvesting of their crops which will provide food for themselves and for others. Lord in your mercy
We pray for the work of CAFOD: that it may continue to enable those in our global community who don't have enough food to share in the banquet that God has prepared for us all. Lord in your mercy
For those who have died, and for those whose anniversaries occur at this time, may they know the peace, which comes from sharing in Christ's victory over death. Lord in your mercy.
Let us join our prayers with the prayers of Our Lady: Hail Mary.
We make our private petitions in silence.
The priest concludes the prayers:
Heavenly Father, hear the prayers of your people and grant our petitions out of the same love with which you created us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
