March 8 ~ Thid Sunday of Lent

+ For those preparing to enter the Church at Easter who this weekend celebrate the First Scrutiny:  that they will find in the Creed of the Church the sustenance to live a holy life.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ Bless all those who extend their helping hands to those in need of food, shelter and clothing, who share their time, talents and resources with others.    Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ Lord, we pray for an end to the unspeakable violence being done in the name of Allah and for peace in the Middle East and Northern Africa.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ May we honor the Ten Commandments as Your gift pointing us towards a life truly free and fulfilling.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ Jesus understands our human nature well.  We can, therefore, trust in him and his love for us.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ For the grace this week to renew and deepen our efforts at genuine repentance.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick, especially Charlene Collora;  Esther Walsh, mother of Mary Ellen Kennedy;  Lisa Moulding, sister of Jason Moulding;  Pat McCarthy;  Alice Picht, mother of Kathy Picht;  and Jim Waldref.   Also, we pray for those who have died, including Ed Moriarty.    Lord of all wisdom, 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.  Lord of all wisdom, we pray.
