PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL

PALM SUNDAY,  MARCH 25, 2018

  1. In today’s reading of the Passion, we see that Peter, who had seen Jesus transfigured on Mount Tabor and recognised him as the Saviour, deny him three times. At this difficult time for the Church, we ask for the faith to stand by Jesus and have the courage to publicly proclaim the Word of the Lord.

We pray to the Lord                        R. Lord hear our prayer

 

  1. During this Holy Week, we pray for the grace to reflect on the Way of the Cross and on the sufferings which Christ endured out of love for us

  1. Lord, we pray for unity among all Christians and that during this Holy Week those who believe in you, who hope in you and who love you, will worship you in harmony and in the love which you  desire.

We pray to the Lord                        R. Lord hear our prayer.

 

  1. We pray for all  those who,  like Jesus, carry a heavy cross because of poverty, homelessness, illness and bereavement.  We pray also for those who help them in their moment of need.

  1. We welcome the news that Pope Francis will come to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families in August. We pray that his visit will lead to a reawakening of the Christian spirit in the Irish people and an awareness that Christ is to be found in our midst every day in the ill, the poor and the homeless.

 

We pray to the Lord                        R. Lord hear our prayer

  1. We bow our heads and remember in silence our own personal intentions and the intentions of those who have asked for our prayers.

 

We pray to the Lord                        R. Lord hear our prayer
