Link: Apostleship of Prayer

 

Pray with Pope Francis:

April Intentions:

That governments may foster the protection

of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.

That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts

of those who are being tested by pain and sickness

 

 

 

                                

 

A Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

 

 

Heavenly Father, Your Son taught us

"Blessed are the Peacemakers for

they shall be called Children of God"

At this hour, we fervently pray

that Your Holy Spirit may

inspire men and women

in Ukraine to become Peacemakers.

May they seek reconciliation

and dialogue and end

the violent confrontation and killing.

May they restore tranquility

to their nation

and restore human rights,

democratic principles

 

 

and religious liberty

to their troubled land.

God, our Father, we beseech You

to comfort the suffering, heal the

wounded and accept the souls of the

departed into Your Heavenly Kingdom.

And may the Most Holy

Mother of God, extend her

Blessed Mantle of Protection

over Ukraine.

And may each of us always

live our lives

as instruments of Your Peace.

Amen.

 

 

 

Let us pray:

For Francis our Pope, Paul our Bishop, James our pastor and all the clergy, with the people entrusted to their charge.

For those who hold public office and those who assist them in promoting the common good.

For those who travel by sea, land, or air, for captives and all held in prison.

For the elderly and sick of our parish that they may be strengthened by our love of them as brothers and sisters.
