Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Bulletin Column and Prayers of the Faithful

Version 2

Link to this week’s parish bulletin and my column

Prayers of the Faithful

Let us anoint one another with prayer in times that challenge our relationships, that fracture our families, and that create turmoil in our nation. May we experience divine healing in all we do and in all we serve.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us live our commitment in God and the Church with all of our hearts, our minds and our strength. May God’s love reveal peace to all people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to connect our faith with serving people in our world. May our love for God become manifest among God’s poor, among the stranger in need and for all who seek justice in our world.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pour oil into the wounds we create within our families and in all our relationships. May healing become the mission of the Church for all people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us carry the burdens of people suffering with mental illness within our lives of prayer. May people experience the emotional healing they long for.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us walk with our neighbors who experience the death of people they love. May grief and loss be overcome with prayer and support. In this Mass…
