18th Sunday of the Year A

That all God’s People will hunger for God and thirst for the Spirit, and so grow in love for the Jesus who nourishes us in the Breaking of the Bread and Sharing of the Cup

Jesus teaches us to share and send no one away hungry … we pray for a world hungry for justice, thirsting for peace, yearning for harmony: may we play our part in building a world fit for all the Children of the Earth, as we pray especially for fairer trade agreements between the rich nations and the developing world

                        [Response]       Fill our every hunger…

For all who are caught up in the ‘contagion of war’ afflicting our world at this time: for the stricken people of the Yemen in their desperation and suffering, for peace and security between Palestine and Israel; for the victims of conflict in Syria and Iraq, in Mali, Cameroon and the Darfur; for the oppressed of Hong Kong and China

                        [READER]          LORD YOU ARE BREAD OF LIFE…       
                        [Response]       Fill our every hunger…

For all shut out of and victimised by our prosperous society; for all who have been so wounded by life that they cannot believe that ‘nothing separates them from the love of God’ … may they be helped by good and wise friends who will bring them healing and restore their faith in God, themselves and humanity 

                        [READER]          LORD YOU ARE BREAD OF LIFE…       
                        [Response]       Fill our every hunger…

For all our sisters and brothers who have not been able to celebrate Baptism, First Eucharist, First Reconciliation, Confirmation or Marriage because of the Covid Restrictions: may they experience the closeness of Jesus Christ overcoming all barriers

                        [Response]       Fill our every hunger…

That the sick might triumph in all their trials by the power of Him who loves them: for the victims of the Covid pandemic in West Africa and the health workers caring for the sick and dying; and for …. ;
for those who have died recently, in particular … and the victims of war and the Corona Virus throughout the world;
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time: … 

                        [READER]          LORD YOU ARE BREAD OF LIFE…
