TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY YEAR A

For the Church … that it will not be afraid to listen to the modern world in all its struggles and dilemmas, while proclaiming the challenging truth of Christ with both compassion and boldness: in this ‘Season of Creation’ may we not be afraid to raise our voices and proclaim Good News to all Creation

for those who have died recently especially … and all victims of war and violence;
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time …
