General Intersessions for the Fifth Sunday of Easter
- Father God, you have grown a vineyard in which we as the branches
bear the fruits of your divine wisdom. Provide our government leaders
with the courage to pass laws that will ensure the safety of our young
people, especially young Black men.
- Help us to speak boldly as our forefather Paul, to change the minds
and touch the hearts of our fellow Catholics as we address the issues
of racial injustice.
- Jesus, our brother and teacher, you help us to know the WAY through
your abiding love. Guide us to share with our neighbors and friends
your way of caring for those in need.
- Beloved Son of God, your father on earth, Joseph, guided you
through your first 30 years. Instill in our fathers today the traits of
dignity and responsibility he lovingly bestowed on you.
- Mary, our Mother and the mother of Our Savior, intercede on our
behalf to your Son and give solace to those who have succumbed to
the coronavirus or other diseases.
- We pray especially today for comfort for the Primosch and Smith
families. Console them and bring their loved ones to paradise.
