SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT YC

The Transfigured Christ reveals to the company of the disciples the Glory of God within each of us: may the Church reveal to a world, shadowed by war, terror and injustice, the glory of God’s love by our courage to love and care without limit…

[reader]           LORD WE PRAY…
[response]     SHOW US YOUR GLORY!

The Glory of God is humanity fully alive: for all whose dignity is obscured by poverty and famine;  for all whose dignity is denied by discrimination, oppression and torture; for all whose dignity is diminished by addiction and abuse: we pray for the inspiring work of CAFOD as it brings hope to the poorest of the earth

LORD WE PRAY…

The disciples gazed upon Jesus’ glory and listened to the voice of Truth:  that we might grow into a deeper love for the Word of God and a greater sensitivity to the voice of God in the stillness of prayer

LORD WE PRAY…

After the Glory passed, they saw only Jesus: may this Lent be for each of us a profound time of Renewal, a deepening of prayer, a growing in faith, an expansion of Love, and a profound conversion to Jesus; may the Holy Spirit guide the Church to become the Sacrament of the Father’s Mercy for the world
                                                                LORD WE PRAY…

As Abraham was called to leave his land and security to follow the whispers of God deep within him, we ask God’s blessing and guidance as we launch and develop this new ministry to the Catholic LGBT+ community, bringing healing to the wounds of rejection and condemnation; we pray also for all our Muslim brothers and sisters who grieve for those killed in New Zealand – may the hatred which led to this atrocity be challenged by love and mercy and a deepening of friendship among all the children of Abraham

LORD WE PRAY…

They were covered with shadow:  may all who are overshadowed with pain and sickness find healing;  we pray very especially for our Muslim brothers and sisters injured in the New Zealand atrocity, and all who have been traumatised by that terrible event;
that eternal glory may ever shine upon those who have died recently, especially all the victims of the attack on the mosques,  and all who have died of poverty or war
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time

LORD WE PRAY…

Mary,  teach us to listen to the voice of God as you did, as we pray…      

HAIL MARY…

Let us pray in silence for all our Muslim brothers and sisters killed in the attacks in New Zealand
