Intercessions ~ Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The liturgy returns to the Green Time - the color of hope./ Lead us Lord, to trust that You will act in this world of stress,/ disappointment and uncertainty./ We pray to the Lord.

The World Cup games continue./ Let hearts be changed to love peace/ born of a belief in our commonality:/ that we are all God's beloved children./ We pray to the Lord.

Make security,/ safety,/ nourishment and happiness happen for the children/ where they are deprived,/ threatened and afraid./ We pray to the Lord.

Give your Church the new direction of the Holy Spirit;/ make it clean and true to Christ's Gospel./ We pray to the Lord.

Give gifts of new growth to families where there is trouble,/ sorrow,/ violence and sickness of any kind./ We pray to the Lord.

May the Lord protect us from foolish ignorance which spawns hatred,/ waste and death./ We pray to the Lord.

Bless and keep the lands and peoples of Libya,/ Liechtenstein,/ Lithuania,/ Luxembourg and Macau./ We pray to the Lord.

And give the gift of light and life to those who have died this week/ aware as we are/that so many places around the world have become fields of terror,/ ruin and death./ And for those who mourn the dead in tremendous sorrow./ We pray to the Lord.


  1. This wonderful picture shows us how clear the road to heaven could be if we follow Jesus Christ. The trees could be all the graces we receive along the way. Its such a peaceful picture.

  2. Green is the color of nature symbolizing growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. It also instills an emotional sense of safety. Let this Liturgical season bring a sense of stability in our lives so that we may not not wander from this path to eternity.
