GENERAL INTERCESSIONS / ASCENSION THURSDAY
May 21, 2020
Loving God, we pray that, although Jesus ascended from
this earthly home to sit at Your right hand, we continue to
“see” and “hear” him through Your Spirit .
Loving God, we pray that world, country, and local leaders
hear the call of the Spirit, seeking to help all who are
frightened, unemployed, sick, isolated, or have suffered loss
of a loved one.
Creator God, we pray that, during this Laudato Si’ Week, we
hear Pope Francis’ summons to profound interior
conversion, to renew our relationships with God, one
another, and the created world.
Merciful God, we pray for all suffering from food,
housing, and health insecurity, that, moved by the
Spirit, we can continue to minister and seek additional
ways to minister to those affected.
Merciful God, we pray for all who have died during this time
of pandemic, including our fellow parishioner Florencio Cruz,
that they ascend in victorious glory to dwell in your loving
