PRIEST: God, our Father loves the world so much and is constantly searching for his lost children May we repent and believe that God is our loving Father and so come to eternal life.

Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

We pray for all our Missionaries today, especially those working in hostile and dangerous places. May their faith and courage be strengthened and so bear witness to the loving and forgiving God of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

We remember especially the sick, those in hospital and those who are housebound, those of our own families wherever they may be. May they experience the love and compassion of God. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for those who have recently died… and for all our dead… and for all who mourn that they may be comforted. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Now let us pray for a few moments in silence for our own needs and intentions.

Let us ask Mary the Mother of the Lord to pray with us: Hail Mary…

PRIEST: Almighty and ever-living God
as we look forward in faith to re-living the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.
Grant that we may experience the reconciliation, renewal and eternal life that our Saviour promises.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
