14th Sunday of the Year (C)


As we gather together around the altar, united to Christ the Prince of peace, let us pray to God:


For the Church; may the Lord grant her peace and unity, that she may be firmly united in faith and love.
Lord hear us.

For all those who are called to the priesthood, especially Deacon Craig, and for those called to the permanent diaconate and the consecrated life. As Christ sent out the 72, may he give them the strength and courage to answer his call.
Lord hear us.

May the Lord give those who work for peace the strength and courage to persevere in their efforts, despite the setbacks and disappointments they may encounter. Lord hear us.

For the people of Egypt; that their country may move from uncertainty to stability, from military rule to democracy, from danger to safety.
Lord hear us.

For all those who have died; may the Lord grant them peace and eternal rest. Lord hear us.

Let us commend ourselves and all God’s people both living and dead to the intercession of Our Blessed Lady as we say, Hail Mary…

Let us now pray for a moment in silence


Lord Jesus Christ,
look not on our sins but on the faith of your Church
and grant us the peace and unity of your kingdom,
for your live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
