September 2 ~ Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

+ That leaders of the Church may be doers of the Word as examples for all of us to follow.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ May the people of the world be undefiled before you, as they care for each other.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ We continue to pray for the well-being of our nation during these challenging times.  We yearn for your will to be done in our national life.  May we be willing instruments in helping to fulfill it.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ May we each become ministers of your love for those in need - helping to restore hope, repair what may be broken and straighten out what may be entangled - all in your name.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ As the new school year is beginning, we ask your blessings on all our students, and their teachers and administrators.  May they be inspired by a passion for learning, and be guided by your wisdom.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ For the grace to be persons who attract others by our fidelity and love.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick including Chari Kinney; Lorraine Crist; Ilse Wefers; Joseph Gentile, father of Liz McKay; Mike Finn; and Carol Vizzare.  We also pray for all those who have died, especially Edward Rybak, grandfather of Leah Tousignant.  Triune God, lover of all, 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.  Triune God, lover of all, we pray.
