INTERCESSIONS. 15th. SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME [C]
July 14th., 2019

Priest: Let us pray for the Church and the world through Jesus Christ, who is Compassion itself.

Reader: For all Christians, that we may abide by Christ’s commandment, to love God, to love our neighbour, and to have a heathy love for ourselves, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, have mercy: Lord, have mercy.

For the Samaritans, that they may always be filled with the Spirit of patience and of encouragement, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, have mercy: Lord, have mercy.

For political leaders in the international field, that they may seek ways of reconciliation and steer clear of empty threats, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, have mercy: Lord, have mercy.

For elderly people, that they may not be frustrated by a slower pace of life, but may find in that new context their own vocation, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, have mercy: Lord, have mercy.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, who unfailingly led others to the love of her Son, pray for us now:

SUB TUUM PRAESIDIUM
To thee do we fly for protection, O holy Mother of God;
Despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin Mary, Amen.

Let us pray in silence for our own intentions [silence]:

Priest: Heavenly Father, may your Holy Spirit support as we pray, that as we make our pilgrimage through life we may always recognise the many people who are alongside us, known to us or unknown; this we ask through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
