Happy Easter everyone: Please include the following in your daily prayers this month. I call upon you God, for you will answer me; bend your ear and hear my prayer.
For the Holy Father’s intention that the public, prayerful celebrations of faith may give life to the faithful.
That mission churches may be signs and instruments of hope and resurrection.
Lord Jesus, bless the families of Ascension Parish this Easter Season. May we experience your risen presence in our hearts.
Jesus, comfort all those who receive bad news this day. May they have strong faith and good friends to comfort them.
That people who have difficulty forgiving those who have caused them pain may open themselves to God’s grace and learn to forgive.
We pray that believers may recognize in the Eucharist the living presence of the Risen One who accompanies them in daily life.
Lord Jesus, we pray that those in authority may govern with justice and truth, so that human life may be safeguarded, regardless of age or health.
May our world be blessed with more priests and religious willing to devote their whole lives to God and His Church.
For those who have died, especially our relatives and friends, that they may enjoy eternal peace in the kingdom of heaven.
The peace of Christ be with you
