GENERAL INTERCESSIONS

 

 

 

Feast of the Holy Family – Year B

 

 

 

31st December 2017

 

 

 

Priest:         On this feast of the Holy Family, we pray that we may recognise God present among us - in the family of our Parish, in the world family and within our own personal families …

 

 

 

Reader:      Our Gospel today reminds us that Jesus is the Messiah, leading all people to freedom and hope.  We pray, therefore, for all the peoples of the world, especially the troubled communities in Afghanistan and Syria: may all people be led to experience hope in the midst of the world’s war, violence and fear.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

On this Feast of the Holy Family, we pray for our own families, that there might be an outpouring of love and charity.  May each of us work to build up family life in society. 

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for the needy of the world’s family and especially for all who struggle at this time of year with no shelter, no home and no clothes.  May those who are struggling in our world move us to works of kindness and charity.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

That the family of the Church may cry out the message of reconciliation and peace; and may each of recognise that we all have a role to play within the Church in bringing God’s Kingdom into a needy world.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for the repose of the soul of RENA VICKERS and for all who have died, especially our own family members who shared these times with us in past years: may they all rest in the peace of Heaven.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

And now we pray in silence for our own personal intentions … (Pause)

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Priest:         Father of all, listen to these prayers, answer our needs and lead us as we seek to build our families in love, hope and joy.  We ask this through the same Christ our Lord.
