As we begin our prayers, I would like us to remember all those who have dedicated their lives to spreading the Gospel whether at home or abroad.
May each of us reverence the Lord in our own hearts and give witness to our faith in our local community.
We remember people who are persecuted for doing what is right. May their perseverance be rewarded.
We pray for all who spread the message of hope by patiently accepting illness and suffering. May the Lord give them strength and endurance. Amen.
Bless those who are alone with the assurance that the Holy Spirit will guide and console them.
And may almighty God bless us all in this life and in the next. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
