Sixth Sunday of Easter, May 26, 2019
Coming to the Lord with hearts that are troubled and afraid, we ask that his peace will enter into all aspects of our lives.
- That Pope Francis will be blessed with good health and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit during his pastoral visit to Romania and as he leads the Church through this time of controversy and upset. We pray to the Lord.
- That nations of the world will truly praise God by their resolve to build alliances of peace that will remove the horrors of war from the face of the earth. We pray to the Lord.
- That in all of their teachings and decisions, the bishops of the Church will join with Paul and the apostles in all sincerity with assurances that their actions are not merely their opinions but also reflect the will of the Holy Spirit. We pray to the Lord.
- That we may love the Lord Jesus and keep his word so that the Father and the Son will reside with us in all our actions. We pray to the Lord.
- That during this Memorial Day weekend we will remember in prayer and thanksgiving those brave individuals who sacrificed their own lives that we might live in freedom. We pray to the Lord.
- That those actively serving in the military, as civilian first responders, and as emergency personnel at home and throughout the world may be granted wisdom, be protected from harm, and know our gratitude for their service. We pray to the Lord.
- That military veterans who suffer from the physical, psychological, and spiritual wounds of war may be granted the Lord’s peace and know the appreciation of all people of good will. We pray to the Lord.
- That Our Blessed Mother, the Queen of Peace, will intercede for us to bring peace between nations, within our families, among neighbors, and within our parish. We pray to the Lord.
- That Fr. Christopher may be healed from his surgery and restored to full health so that he may serve the Lord with his priesthood and his care and concern for others. We pray to the Lord.
- That God may have pity on those who are ill and may let his face shine upon them giving them comfort, consolation, and confidence for the future. We pray to the Lord.
- That our deceased family and friends who served in the military may live forever in heaven in the peace that is beyond all understanding. We pray to the Lord.
- For our own intentions that we recall in silence…….. We pray to the Lord.
O God, you call us to love you by living the message that Jesus brought to earth. May we live humbly, recognizing our need for your grace in answer to these prayers that we offer and in all aspects of our lives. We make these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.

There are so many things to pray for… today at the lung drs office we met a couple who told us that their son got cancer when he was 14 – he said his ankle hurt one day and they checked it out and it was bone cancer——and died at age 19– since his death they have sponsored scholarships for other young people to to to college—–
then we met a couple who arrived late for thier appt……. twenty minutes late and the receptionist came out and told them they have to re schedule as the office was so busy today- they wer behind in patients——I felt so bad for them.an elderly copuple with th elady in her wheelchair n and the man was wearing a Korean veterans hat……I leaned over and said Thank you for your service before all this took place!
……. they happened to be black—— i said– ” rt This isn’t fair” This isn’t right” but the receptionist let me know i should not say anything more! She looked at me in a mean way!
I wish I could have said they can have my appt——-knowing it isn’t easy to be old and get to an appt at a large hospital with an old man pushing his wife in a wheelchair – just to drive there and then to park……take elevators…….is not easy…… find your way to the office——long walkways etc———–
what ever happened to our world??? I recall the days when the doctor came to the house so this seemed so awful to me———so wrong and so sad! That couple has to return on June 10th! i am sure it will not be easy for them!
Is there no compassion for those suffering injustice??? I am glad to know that there are people who are good people and who do care —?
Pray for these two families to be treated with kindness— one lost their son and one older couple needs to return to the drs office another day because they were late getting there—
We learned a lesson today in compassion for those who suffer ———please say a prayer for all those who are sick and in need of compassionate people to speak up for them and look after them!!
God bless Fr Christopher as he recovers and God bless our Church with compassionate people! Sincerely-Mary Jo and Hank Maher
