Lord God, Rock of Ages, strengthen all who are washed in the saving waters of baptism, especially Maura Catherine and her family.                                                       

Lord God, Source of Life, refresh with living water the souls of those who are at the point of despair, perhaps considering suicide.                                                                  

Lord God, Deliverer, help us defend and serve people who are unjustly treated, especially people who are on the margins of society.                                                             

Lord God of Love, help us to reach out to people of other cultures, to eliminate prejudice in our society, starting with our own.                                                                                     

Lord, Eternal God, prepare us for death, showing us the way to eternal live. Strengthen in faith the families of the recently deceased.
