Oh Divine Creator, you created us all in your image and likeness. Help us to see
YOU in all your precious children and be a more loving and tolerant church
Enrich our faith in the Universal church and unite all of us—including our black
and brown brothers and sisters, and our many different Catholic traditions—
in one accord.

Life-Giving Redeemer, you are the bread that feeds us and strengthens us.
Guide our lawmakers to make wise decisions about how to strengthen our
national infrastructure.
Bless us and keep everyone safe, as fires rage in California and other western
states. You handle all things; we ask you to aid your people who face so much

Everlasting Savior, care for our elderly and all who need your healing, whether
physically, spiritually, or mentally. Be with them so they know they are not
Lead our beloved deceased to their eternal home with you. Give comfort to
those who mourn their lost loved ones and grant them your everlasting peace.
