Body and Blood of Christ

PRIEST

Dear friends, obedient to Jesus’ command, we break bread and drink from the cup together. Gathered in his memory, let us pray for all he loved unto the end.

(PAUSE)  Bread of Life hear us:  Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • For the countless human beings throughout the world whose life is a daily struggle: May the world community unite to provide the necessities of life for them, rather than spending their resources in preparing for conflict.     

(PAUSE)  Bread of Life hear us:  Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • For those in need in our neighbourhood: May the feast of the Sacred Heart this week inspire us to be generous in our support of the St. Vincent de Paul winter appeal so there will be resources to give them comfort and hope.

  • For the Australian bishops, in Rome for their ad limina visit: May the period of listening in preparation for the 2020 Plenary Council be a source of knowledge and inspiration for them as they meet Pope Francis and other leaders of our Church.

May they know God’s healing love through those who care for them.

  • For all who have died recently, those whose anniversary occurs at this time, and for departed family and friends, especially Jack Mullane, Pino Gelsi, Potenciano Catingub, Michael Galluccio and Marcus Fitt. May they be made welcome at the banquet of eternal life.

PRIEST  

Holy God, at the Table of Eucharist you feed us with the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Strengthen us with these gifts for lives of joyful service. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
