The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, June 07, 2020

As we celebrate the great mystery of the Holy Trinity, we offer our petitions with confidence that God will be with us in all the mysteries we encounter during our life on earth.

  1. That the Holy Trinity — Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier — will be proclaimed in the life of the Church which treasures and preserves all creation, exhibits love of all neighbors and people, and seeks wisdom and grace in all its actions. We pray to the Lord.
  2. That the differences between cultures, people, and faiths that tear people apart will be mended through mutual encouragement and agreement so that all may rejoice and live in peace. We pray to the Lord.
  3. That at this time of unrest in our country, we may be inspired to seek reconciliation by the self-evident truths that all are created equal and are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We pray to the Lord.
  4. That during this time of physical separation from family and friends, we will act with unity of purpose that reflects the unity of God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We pray to the Lord.
  5. That all who have been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit may grow in faith, exhibit hope in all aspects of their lives, and demonstrate charity to those who are in need. We pray to the Lord.
  6. That those who suffer from war, poverty, and displacement for whom the coronavirus provides yet another challenge to achieving stable and secure lives may find aid and will be courageous and confident as they seek a joyful future. We pray to the Lord.
  7. That Christians who are victims of religious persecution will remain resolute in declaring the mystery of the Trinity and be strengthened by knowledge that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that their faith might lead them to eternal life. We pray to the Lord.
  8. That Fr. Christopher and all those who suffer may find their way in life, allowing themselves to be touched by the Heart of Jesus.[1] We pray to the Lord.
  9. Knowing that God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, may we strive to avoid condemning others we encounter but seek to bring them to salvation through Jesus. We pray to the Lord.
  10. That we may not be stiff-necked people, but rather seek pardon for our wickedness and sins so that we may be received as God’s own. We pray to the Lord.
  11. That those who are ill from the coronavirus will be freed from serious symptoms and that those who selflessly and tirelessly serve to heal them will be kept safe from all sickness. We pray to the Lord.
  12. That those who have died and their families and friends who mourn will be at peace and know God’s love despite the hardships they have endured. We pray to the Lord.

O God, on this blessed solemnity as we offer our glory and praise forever, may we grow in faith and confidence in your love through the sure knowledge that you hear and answer all our needs. We offer our prayers this day and give glory to the Father, the Son, and the  Holy Spirit – one God who lives and reigns now and forever.. Amen.

  1. thanks for those petitions –
    I read once –
    ” we mourn because we are human-
    we rejoice because we are Christians.”

    for all those who have died and we miss in this life—
    but they are safe now with the Lord—
    I mourn and I rejoice –
    for and with them.

    peace for all!
    mary jo
