Ascension Catholic Community Ministry of Intercession for May 2013

In times of tragedy and pain we believe, O God, that you are with us. Please pray the following petitions this month.

For the Holy Father’s intention that administrators of justice may act always with integrity and right conscience.

We pray that seminaries, especially those of mission churches, may form pastors after the Heart of Christ, fully dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel.

God Our Father, we pray for all those who lost their lives and those who were injured during the Boston Marathon and the explosion in Texas. For all the families who were traumatized by these horrible events.

Holy Spirit, guide all first responders to tragic events, including clergy and counselors, who try to help the grieving to deal with the painful events of life.

We pray that we live out our baptismal calling, sharing the Gospel with others through our words and actions.

We pray for all those receiving their First Holy Communion that they will always love Jesus.

God Our Father, we thank you for the gift of Mary, our heavenly mother, and for our mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers and those who nurture in place of mothers.

Holy Spirit, inspire all graduates to use the gifts that You have given them to fulfill their role in life. Guide them in their career choices.

For the sick and suffering members of our worldwide family.

May you have a blessed month!

    Dear Brother!
    I am traditional catholic from Finland, and my way is also contemplative, and spirituality Carthusian. I am also hermit like You.
    The loneliness is the possibility to become a saint or a sinner to die. The desert is desolate, empty, cruel- we think today only at flowering deserts. This is wrong. Think of St. Antony of Egypt. He went in the beginning of His monastic life deeper and deeper into the desert, the solitude. He was lived in abandoned graves. He ran away. But again He was found God in the desert. Remember, God lives in desert. In the solitude of man. Jesus was in the desert. We remain with Jesus. That is appeal of the Carthusian _ Stay with Jesus. I will pray for You, dear Brother in Faith in Christ! Be calm and silent….who are the people who know do not know God. Love God, and the people. I am in all Finland alone wit this contemplative way.
