Intercessions ~ Sunday of the Holy Trinity


On Trinity Sunday we ask/ as we are drawn into God's inner life/ we would find not only God/ but each other/ and all the world in its poverty,/ fatigue and need./ We pray to the Lord.

Pope Francis has said: "I am old now and these trips are heavy."/ And so we pray for him,/ asking stamina,/ safety and health./ We pray to the Lord.

We entrust the children of the world to our prayer/ as they face perils in many places./ We ask for a movement of hearts/ which will make the care of children/ a priority of love./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray to be careful stewards of our planet/ using its resources wisely and justly:/ guardians of the water and air,/ the animals and plants./ we pray to the Lord.

Thursday is the feast of St. Philip Neri,/ the saint with a sense of humor./ We ask not to be overwhelmed,/ but to keep a light heart,/ rooted in the presence of God./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for our families where there is weakness,/ imbalance,/ sickness or stress./ For the unemployed,/ the destitute,/ the refugee and those who help them./ We pray to the Lord. 

Finally we pray for those who have died,/ remembering that so many die violently,/ suddenly,/ alone and unacknowledged./ We pray to the Lord.

  1. Foe all these food intentions, let us pray. They are specially relevant this week.

  2. We don't hear too much about saints and their humor. It helps to keep a light heart and not take oneself too seriously. I'll have to look him up. Thank you always for the intercessions.
