Prayer of the Faithful

Prayer of the Faithful

The Most Holy Trinity

May 21-22, 2016


Presider: The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit draws us, from our cultural and human diversity, into a unity of faith through which we worship God, and to whom we bring our hopes and needs.

For the Church. May it demonstrate profound love for all people. We pray to the Lord…

For people of every race, language, and religion. May we together be a sign of the diversity and unity of God, living in peace and joy. We pray to the Lord…

For families who suffer due to illness, poverty, violence or other hardships. May they be given hope, support and relief. We pray to the Lord…

For Saint Pius the Tenth Parish. May we reflect the love of the Trinity, so that God’s love draws us together, God’s mercy forgives our sins, and God’s wisdom leads us into truth in all of our relationships. We pray to the Lord…

For all who need our prayers and support, especially the sick. We pray to the Lord…

For our beloved dead. May they enter God’s heavenly home and dwell forever with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We pray to the Lord...

For the prayers we offer now in silence. (pause)  We pray to the Lord…

Presider: Creator God, you formed us and made us and know the thoughts and motives of our hearts.  Give us a taste of the marvelous harmony of the Holy Trinity.  Help us to cast aside our differences and serve you in all that we do.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
