- Loving God, as we celebrate this feast of Pentecost we pray for Pope Francis and all our Church leaders. May your Holy Spirit renew their minds, hearts, and spirits, and rekindle in all the Church the fire of your love.
- As the first Christians were filled with your divine spirit and heard your voice in many different languages, we pray that our political leaders will hear your voice in all who are crying out for social justice and compassion.
- We pray for our country, so divided by fear, politics and racism. May your Spirit guide us to address our wrongs and to find the way to peace.
- We pray for this St. Vincent community as we continue to be filled with your life-giving power. Bless us with the courage to address injustice, humility to know our weaknesses, and love to embrace and serve all people.
- Holy Comforter we pray that you pour forth your healing power on all who are suffering physically, mentally, or spiritually. May those who mourn be consoledand may our beloved dead be welcomed into your abundant life.
