Second Sunday of Lent

We pray for those who seek faith and belonging within the Church this Lent. God, invite the restless to journey toward your glorious light. May they find welcome and hope at your altar.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who climb mountains of job loss, ill health and food insecurity. God, feed the souls who turn toward you in their need and suffering, and may they hear your consoling voice.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for our spiritual mentors and guides. God, on the journey toward Jerusalem, befriend those who show others the challenges of faith and the gentleness of love.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who cannot bear the pain of their bodies, their minds, and their souls. God, heal those who ache for love, for justice and health.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for patience among us. God, invite the lost to journey toward you in fidelity and comfort, and may every pilgrim find the treasure of your presence.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who have journeyed to the Kingdom. God, receive the souls of those whose faith prepared them for home. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.

  1. These are beautiful, Ron! The Transfiguration reminds us that Jesus is with us on those “mountains” of problems, and is our light in darkness. Your reflections always call us into deeper prayer and love for Jesus.
