Sunday January 15, 2023 Cycle A

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

For the health and wellbeing of Francis, our Pope, and all who shepherd us toward honesty and integrity. May we not stumble on false pride and entitlement.

We pray to the Lord.

For a loving remembrance of our common baptism. May we learn with childlike awe to claim our authority of faith from the healing voice of God. May our waters of baptism break into new life of healing and hope for all people on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

For a vital listening to God’s voice in days of thunderous echoes of hatred and violence. May our hearts be attuned to the subtle sounds of love upon the earth.

We pray to the Lord.

For nations plagued with uprisings, conflicts, and wars. May God’s authority of peace be entrusted to us in liberating our people from corruption.

We pray to the Lord.

For people blanketed in self-doubt and mental fatigue. May we warm those suffering from emotional disorders with words of hope and actions of friendship.

We pray to the Lord.

For children pushed into corners of neglect and abuse. May the true authority of love shelter the most vulnerable in our world. May the next generation find within us a desire for peace and security.

We pray to the Lord.

For our elderly ambushed by loneliness and insufficient healthcare. May we open our eyes to those who weep in the nighttime. May the Holy Spirit reveal hope to all marginalized people.

We pray to the Lord.

For people shivering in grief. May those who have lost love on earth find hope in the promise of heaven for their families and friends who have died.

We pray to the Lord.
