For the many groups and organizations that work to alleviate hunger
both by distributing food and by promoting food production.

 For those called to service as priests, deacons and religious,
especially for the Vincentian novices who recently made their vows.

 For all who prophetically stand against war and the development of
weapons, especially weapons of mass destruction.

 For those who find themselves in financial straits during the
pandemic, may they get relief; and for governmental leaders that they
are compassionate and wise in distributing funds.

 For the sick and dying that they may have interior strength and
unflagging faith and for those who have died, that they may have an
everlasting abode with our loving God.
