First Sunday of Lent

We pray for our Universal Church as we enter Lent. God, heal the broken places of our institutions, and satisfy the spiritual longings for all who feel they do not belong.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the weary and anxious. God, calm the battles within those who face the treacherous desert of pain, fear and lack of forgiveness.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the Elect, chosen today for the Easter sacraments. God, welcome those whom you inspire with faith and offer gentleness to those who search for you.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who battle harsh climes. God, ease the lives of people who survive storms, floods, whipping winds or long-term droughts.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who struggle in deserts of the soul. God, forgive the wrongs of our past and ease the echoes of our regrets in this Lenten season.

We pray to the Lord

We pray for our beloved dead who rest in abundant pastures. God, give peace to our loved ones in heaven and hope on earth for all who grieve. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
