Fourth Sunday of Lent

We pray for restored sight and insight in Lent. God, help us learn to see well beyond our own lives to those who most need the basics of life.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for new sight for those who are blinded by power and greed. God, open the eyes of the rich and powerful to their own gifts and help them learn to serve beyond measure.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the disabled and the blind. God, help those with vision impairment to trust in your love and goodness. Restore all to good health.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those lost along the roadsides of life. God, take the weary by the hand and reveal to them how to find food, clothing and housing. May we see with new eyes and learn to serve with new hope.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those to whom we have been blind. God, help us see the true gifts and talents of people we have ignored. May reconciliation find a home within our relationships.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who are ill and those who have died of the coronavirus. May God’s healing hand be in us who fear the future, who grieve the dead and who suffer loss of income and jobs.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who have found their way home to heaven. God, take us by the hand in our death and bring us to a place of freedom. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.

  1. Your Prayers of the Faithful are always nourishing and beautifully written.

    Many thanks for widening our vision in these difficult times, Janet Corso

  2. Thank you Father Ron for your homily. It is our way to feel that we are all together in spirit. Although this is a difficult time I see many good things happening. Families are uniting people have slowed down and have time. We have learned to let go and really know what the most important thing in life is for us. The thing that we need is like the blind man to see the Face of Jesus.I pray for all people that they may see the Face of Jesus the only thing that really matters.
