Holy Family
(30 December 2018)

1 We pray for the Universal Church
 

We pray for Pope Francis, all the clergy and all the faithful. May we all continually strive to grow in holiness in Christ, and become role models of communion and prayer for the world.

  For this we pray to the Lord.
   
2 We pray for world peace
 

We pray that all leaders may exercise their authority fairly with love and consideration to promote harmony and peace and especially support the oppressed.

  For this we pray to the Lord.
   
3 We pray for all families
 

We pray that all families may taste and see the goodness of the Lord, through kindness, obedience and respect for each other and be the root of love to the elderly.

  For this we pray to the Lord.
   
4 We pray for the needy and abandoned
 

May God embrace each and every one, through our concrete actions, with His unconditional love especially in times of distress and loneliness.

  For this we pray to the Lord.
   
7 We pray now in silence for our own personal intentions…..
  For this we pray to the Lord.
