June 23 ~ The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

+ For the Church, the Body of Christ: that we will deepen our devotion to the Eucharist which gives life to the world.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ We again pray for the well-being of our nation in these perilous times.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ Guide us as we at St. Anne proceed on this journey of transition in our leadership.  Be with us as we move forward with gratitude in our hearts for what has been and hope in what will be.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ May we ever remember that our participation in the body and blood of Christ can transform our community into becoming itself the very Body of Christ which we have shared together.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ May this transformation move us out into the world to love, minister to, and help all your people.  In this light, we ask your special blessings on all those ministries of our parish who assist those in need.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ For the grace to live in gratitude for the Eucharist as we remember you forever loving us.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ For those who are sick, including Molly Malloy, Alan Rosenthal, Gordon Rosenthal, Margaret Rican, Sharon Cercone, Frank Siderius, and Naomi Zamberlin.  We also pray for those who have died.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.

+ In thankfulness 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.  Jesus, Bread of Life, we pray.
