"There is Nothing Like Being There"
We miss you! It is time to come back home.
See you on Sunday
Gracious and Merciful God,
We pray today for the Ukrainian people and ask for Your intervention in this senseless war levied against them by Russia. We pray, O God, for protection and that there would be peace. We pray for restoration and renewed hope. We pray for the families, especially, the children living through the horrors of war and all the upheaval and tribulation it brings. We also pray for those protesting in Russia against these violent acts by their government. We ask that You would protect, cover and keep these protesters as they put their bodies on the line in the name of what is just and righteous. We pray for the entire world community, including the leaders in our own country. Give them wisdom and ingenuity to respond in ways that ends this war and moves us all to a world where Your peace abides. Hear the cries of Your people, O God.
Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Amen.
Pope Francis Prayer Intention
For children who suffer
We pray for children who are suffering, especially those who are homeless, orphans, and victims of war; may they be guaranteed access to education and the opportunity to experience family affection.
- Pope Francis -
There are still millions of children who suffer and live in conditions very similar to slavery.
They are not numbers: they are human beings with a name, with a face of their own, with an identity that God has given them.
Too many times we forget our responsibility and close our eyes to the exploitation of these children who have no right to play, study or dream. They don't even have the warmth of a family.
Every marginalized child, abandoned by his family, without schooling, without medical care, is a cry! A cry that rises to God and accuses the system that we adults have built.
An abandoned child is our fault.
We can no longer allow them to feel alone and abandoned; they need to be able to receive an education and feel the love of a family to know that God does not forget them.
Let us pray that children who suffer, those who live on the streets, the victims of war and orphans, can access education and rediscover the affection of a family.
Prayer for Protection of Storms and Illness
God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving
We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes and illness which may threaten us in the coming seasons.
Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in Your love and mercy.
You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain.
You alone bring peace, calm, and safety.
Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only Refuge.
We ask this through Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
Amen. Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and Patroness of our Diocese, pray for us.
Dios Padre nuestro, Creador del Universo y Señor de toda la creación, humildemente nos presentamos a ti, como hijos tuyos, en acción de gracias por tu amoroso cuidado y protección.
Te pedimos que nos guardes de los huracanes y las
Protégenos de todo temor y de la ansiedad que nos causan las tormentas y danos confianza ardiente en Tu amor y misericordia.
Solo Tú tienes el poder de mandar al mar, al viento y a la lluvia.
Solo Tú traes paz, calma y seguridad.
Padre, te agradecemos de antemano, pues tu eres nuestro único refugio.
Te lo pedimos por Cristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo, Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.
Amén. María, Reina de los
