|Pope Francis Visits Our Lady of Quinche ~ Ecuador|
As the Jewish people enter the Passover time,/ we pray for the world to pass over from the experiences of deep darkness to a new light./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the countries of Ecuador and Japan where devastating earthquakes have caused great suffering this week./ We pray to the Lord.
We ask for our prayer and Eucharistic worship to transform us to order and inner harmony./ We pray to the Lord.
In this political time we can speak and act poorly./ For a return to intelligent conversation,/ civility,/ and a desire for the common good./ We pray to the Lord.
For those who have lost their sense of purpose and direction./ For children who have lost their security./ And for ourselves/ where we face difficult challenges or unknowns./ We pray to the Lord.
For the safety of travelers,/ the healing of loved ones who are sick or troubled./ For this world where there is menace,/ terrorism or threat./ We pray to the Lord.
For those who have died recently in war,/ disaster/ or by neglect./ And for those who bury the dead or mourn them./ We pray to the Lord.
