4th Sunday in Ordinary Time : The Universal Prayer / Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

4th Sunday in Ordinary Time



Christ taught us to set our hearts on the Kingdom of God, and on its justice. In that Kingdom our happiness will be complete, and all that we need will be given to us. 



Blessed are those who know their need of God:

May the Lord lead us to seek his face in purity of heart.

Lord, in your mercy. 


Blessed are those who work for no reward, those who suffer for what is right:

May the Lord comfort them with his  presence, and lighten their burden.

Lord, in your mercy. 


Blessed are the gentle, those who show mercy, and forgive;

May they know the Lord’s forgiveness at the end of time.

Lord, in your mercy.


Blessed are the peacemakers, those who reconcile conflict and hate:

May they receive their inheritance as the sons of God.

Lord, in your mercy.


May the Lord bring consolation to all who mourn the dead:

And may they share the blessed hope of all who have died in the peace of Christ.

Lord, in your mercy.


The Angel said to Mary: blessed are you among women! We join our prayers with hers now, as we say: Hail Mary

We pray for a moment in silence.



As we pray before you, Lord, we ask you, in your mercy, for the grace always to ponder in our hearts what we proclaim with our lips. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
