Universal Prayer


Holy Family – December 27, 2020


My dear brothers and sisters, on this night/day, when the goodness and kindness of God our Savior have appeared, let us humbly pour forth to him our prayers, trusting in his mercy. 


For the Church, that in integrity of faith we may welcome with joy him whom the Immaculate Virgin conceived by a word and wondrously brought to birth, and that, in receiving Christ we may also learn to welcome him in one another and in the poor               let us pray to the Lord:   Lord, hear our prayer

For President-Elect Biden, the incoming Administration, and all in positions of authority and responsibility in government and society that, especially in this time of pandemic, they may seek the common good of all and promote public health, justice, and reconciliation among communities in conflict in our country,                                                           let us pray to the Lord:   Lord, hear our prayer.

For all the sick, for health care workers, for all whose livelihood or education has been disrupted by this pandemic, and for accessible and affordable health care for all,                      let us pray to the Lord:   Lord, hear our prayer.

For our own health and safety and that of all our families, friends, and fellow parishioners, and for the grace of prudence and obedience in observing the prescribed precautions so as to prevent the further increase of infection,                                                                                                let us pray to the Lord: Lord, hear our prayer.
