August 13-14, 2022  

We pray that the fire of the Holy Spirit grows within us so that we may serve in the ways that Jesus taught us.

We pray that those who act with violence based on religious, racial, and identity differences. We pray that they be infused with the Spirit to abandon hatred and violence and embrace love.

We pray that all women may find their strength in Mary, motivated by her example to live the Good News in service to God.

We pray for the Church, that it may recognize and respect the wisdom, talent, and dignity of women, and that one day women will be included in positions of religious leadership.

We pray for the intercession of Mary for the sick and for those who have died, that they experience resurrection with Christ, her son.
