June 11 ~ Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

+ May the preaching and teaching of the church bless all with the desire to share in the life of the Blessed Trinity.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ That through the justice of earthly rulers, all nations will come to know your authority and majesty.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ May we be charged with the sense of love, freedom, timelessness, rest and intimate communion—indeed the sense of oneness—of the Most Holy Trinity.  May we strive to bring those qualities into our own lives.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ Help us to remember that in your love we are to mend our own ways, encourage one another, and live in peace.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ We ask your blessings on all graduating students in our St. Anne's community - whether they be 8th graders or high school or college seniors - as they move out into the larger world.  Help them to be the people you have created each of them to be for their joy and for the good of the world.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ For the grace to live each moment consciously united to you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick especially Betty Bertoldi; Laurie McKim; Joyce Powers; and Margaret Angelos.  Also, we pray for those who have died, including Terry Casey and Father Ward Oakshott.   Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.

+ In gratitude for all that is written in our Parish Book of Thanksgiving.  We pray also for the intentions written in the Parish Book of Intercessions and those we hold in the silence of our hearts.  Holy Trinity, one God, we pray.
