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.

 

All intentions are included in our daily Masses and prayers.

For the Holy Souls

2nd November

November 2nd is the feast of All Souls, when we remember all those who have gone before us ‘marked with the sign of faith’. However, we can say that in the popular faith of the people the whole month of November is a time when we feel a particular closeness to our dead relatives and friends.

Our tradition is to remember them by name and so we have the custom of the ‘dead list’ in many parishes. We write down on paper the names of our loved ones who we wish to be in eternal peace with God. For us in St Patrick’s that practice is especially important, many people send to us the names they wish to be remembered during this month. It is a task that is especially dear to our hearts and which our ‘altar of friends’ reminds us every day.

We write the names of our deceased ones on stone also, on their headstones, as a way to keep their memory alive. And so, we have the beautiful tradition of visiting graveyards at this time of the year also.

All of this is our practical human way of echoing a famous line from one of the prophets in the bible, speaking in God’s name “I have written (carved) your name on the palm of my hand” (Is 49:16). This is our faith.

We remember our Society members who died since last November: Fr Francis McElhatton, Fr JP Bohan, Fr Joe Flynn, Fr Michael Dillon, Fr Paddy O’Reilly, Fr Bill Mauric, Student Edward Opiyo Anam, Fr Con Cronin, Fr Michael Kane, Fr Alphie Byrne, Fr John Lalor, and Fr Tom Browne.

May all the names we recall and those who have no one to remember them be in the palm of God’s hand. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Prayer for Strength

Lord, every day I need you,

but especially this day.

I need some extra strength

to face whatever is to come.

 

This day,

more than any other day,

I need to feel you near me,

to fortify my courage

and to overcome my fear.

 

By myself I cannot meet

the challenge of the hour.

I need you to sustain me

in all that life may bring.

And so, dear Lord,

hold my trembling hand.

Be with me, Lord this day,

so that I may know

your guiding hand

at work

in everything,

and know

your guiding

presence

with me always.

Amen.

Prayer in Time of Mourning

Praised be God,

the Father of mercies,

and the God of all consolation.

He comforts us in all our afflictions

and enables us to comfort

those in times of trouble.

Lord Jesus, listen to our prayers.

Look with love on your people

who mourn and pray

for their loved one.

 

Thank you, Father, for all the blessings

You give us in this life.

Help us to comfort each other until we all meet in Christ to be one with you

and our loved ones,

where there will be no more sorrow,

no more weeping, no more pain,

but only peace and joy

for ever and ever.

Amen.

Prayers during Exam time

Prayer Before Study

Lord, give me peace

of mind as I study.

Help me focus on my books and notes,

and keep me from all distractions.

Guide me to make the best use

of this time that is available to me.

Help me to understand what I am studying,

and to remember it when the time comes.

 

Thank you for the ability to be able to study

and for the many gifts

and talents you have given me.

Help me always to use them in

such a way that they honour you

and do justice to myself.

Amen.

Prayer Before An Exam 

Dear Lord,

As I take this exam,

bring back to my mind everything

I have studied and be gracious with

what I may have overlooked.

Help me to remain focussed and calm,

confident in the facts and in my ability,

and firm in the knowledge that

no matter what happens today

you are there with me always.

 

Help me, not only with this test,

but with the many tests of life

that are sure to come my way.

Amen.
