General Intercessions

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time–Oct. 1–2, 2022

High Priest, in this time of Synodality listening and discerning, soften the hearts of our church leaders. Help them to listen and hear the cries and needs of the church as a whole.

O Savior of the World, we pray for all those who are suffering because of natural disasters. We ask especially for your mercy for Puerto Rico and Florida, who have suffered irreparable damage.

Immanuel, as we celebrate this feast of St. Francis of Assisi, guide our hearts to be more open to joy. Give us the gifts of generosity and kindness so we embody St. Francis in our daily lives. 

Wonderful Counselor, guide our parish as Children’s Liturgy starts back up this week. Help us teach the children to walk by faith and not by sight.

Alpha and Omega, comfort those who are dying, bring them peace through your loving and tender embrace. Guide them with your light in the darkness of their suffering.
