Light a candle

Lord you are the light of the world.

May your light guide and comfort us. We ask you to bless this candle, and more importantly bless the person who lit the candle. May these lights serve to remind them of your presence. Light brings comfort, warmth and hope. May this comfort, warmth and hope touch the hearts and lives of those seeking comfort during difficult times.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty and All-loving God,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

We pray to you through Christ the Healer

For those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid-19

In (name your country) and across the world.

 

We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss

Of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.

Give wisdom to policymakers,

Skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,

Comfort to everyone in distress

And a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord

Who showed compassion to the outcast,

Acceptance to the rejected

And love to those to whom no love was shown.

Amen.

Ash Wednesday

February 26th

Today we are marking our foreheads with ashes in solidarity with those who rise up in protest at the reduction of the Amazon Forest to ashes, in solidarity with the people of Australia as they see their beautiful lands reduced to ashes, in solidarity with the people of the Shannon Basin in Ireland as they see their fruitful land inundated with flood waters and their homes destroyed. We pray for all whose who commit themselves to combat greed in all its forms and for those, including our Missionaries, who fight against irreverence in the face of Nature’s limited and precious resources.

Amen.

Prayer for Grandparents

January 28th

PRAYER FOR GRANDPARENTS (This Universal Prayer For Grandparents was composed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2008)

 

Lord Jesus,
you were born of the Virgin Mary,
the daughter of Saints Joachim and Anne.
Look with love on grandparents the world over.
Protect them! They are a source of enrichment
for families, for the Church and for all of society.
Support them! As they grow older,
may they continue to be for their families
strong pillars of Gospel faith,
guardian of noble domestic ideals,
living treasuries of sound religious traditions.
Make them teachers of wisdom and courage,
that they may pass on to future generations the fruits
of their mature human and spiritual experience.

Lord Jesus,
help families and society
to value the presence and roles of grandparents.
May they never be ignored or excluded,
but always encounter respect and love.
Help them to live serenely and to feel welcomed
in all the years of life which you give them.
Mary, Mother of all the living,
keep grandparents constantly in your care,
accompany them on their earthly pilgrimage,
and by your prayers, grant that all families
may one day be reunited in our heavenly homeland,
where you await all humanity
for the great embrace of live without end. Amen!

We ask this in the name of your beloved Son, our brother Jesus.
