May 8 ~ The Ascension of the Lord

+ For the Church: may the People of God live with an ardent hope for heaven.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ May the authority of heaven guide the actions of those who govern on earth to bring about peace in every nation.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ Help us to remember that you and your love are incarnate in each of us, and that we are an Easter people.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ May we in this parish be part of the in-breaking of your Kingdom on earth by sharing your love with all others "even to the ends of the earth."  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ For your blessings on all mothers, grandmothers and godmothers on this Mother's Day.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ May the grace of the Ascension bless us to keep our minds and hearts fixed on the things of heaven.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick especially Charlene Collora, Mike Finn; Terry Casey and Judy Casey.  We also pray for those who have died.  Jesus, enthroned in glory, 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, enthroned in glory, we pray.
