Mary, Mother of God

Let us pray that Mary, Mother of Mercy, will continue to protect the Church. May grace set us free from corruption and secrecy. Like Mary, may we reflect the mystery of Christ within our hearts.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us hear the Word of God and be amazed at the work of God on earth. May we live the message of mercy and peace in our generation. We pray that hope will prevail.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for all mothers and expectant mothers. We lift up the women who give us life, love and consolation. We pray for miracles here on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for lasting and courageous peace among all nations, peoples and in every human heart. We pray that peace may outlive violence, that peace may resist heartache, that peace may blanket our nation with compassion.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for healing among us. We pray for people who are receiving chemotherapy, for people restless about a possible diagnosis of disease. We pray not to stifle hope for any human being.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for those who have died. We pray that our hearts not become drowsy with grief. At this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
