General Intercessions

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time–Oct. 8–9, 2022

Everlasting Father, we celebrate the Most Holy Rosary this October. Let us hold all mothers and mother figures close to our hearts, as we draw nearer to our Holy Mother Mary.

Holy One, we pray for all countries that face turmoil, especially Russia and Ukraine. Guide leaders of the world to work towards peace and bring your swift justice for all.

Good Shepherd, show us how to be more understanding towards those who suffer from mental illness, especially members of the trans community. Help us find more ways to show them they are loved.

Fountain of Living Waters, wash over our neighborhood and our parish community. Protect and keep us as we make calls and go canvassing during this important election year.

Lord God of Hosts, on this the Children’s Sabbath, embrace all children who suffer inequities, live in poverty, and have died due to violence, especially the children who have died by violent means this past year in Philadelphia.
