Celebrant’s Introduction: Saint
Paul encourages us to offer
prayers for everyone. With
this in mind let us present our
needs before the Lord
1. We pray for all who
spread the gospel; that
they may, in the words of
St Paul, ‘speak up for
truth in front of many
Lord, hear us………
2. We pray for those who are
oppressed throughout
the world and unjustly
imprisoned; that they
may receive justice.
Lord, hear us………
3. We pray for all in the
world who are hungry;
that they may receive
their daily bread.
Lord, hear us………
4. We pause for those who
are bereaved; that the
Lord may comfort them
in difficult times.
Lord, hear us………
5. We pray for those who
have died; that they may
win eternal life to which
they were called.
Lord, hear us………
Celebrant: Heavenly Father,
you love justice and protect
the stranger. Grant us what
we need today. We make
our prayers in the name of
Jesus, your Son, our Lord.
You and I are part of the Gospel story today. We
are the five brothers of the rich man who, through
this Gospel passage, has himself come to us from
the dead, to remind us of the lesson he learned
too late. The following is inscribed on the tomb of
an Anglican Bishop in Westminster Abbey:
‘When I was young and free and my imagination had
no limits, I dreamed if changing the world. As I grew
older and wiser, I discovered the world would not
change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and
decided to change only my country. But, it seemed too
immovable. As I grew into my twilight years, in one
last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my
family, those closest to me, but alas they would have
none of it. And now, as I lie on my deathbed, I
suddenly realise, if I had only changed myself first,
then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement, I would
then have been able to better my country and, who
knows, I may have even changed the world.’
Beatitudes for our time…
Blessed are you, when you remain available,
sharing in simplicity what you possess.
Blessed are you, when you weep over the absence
of happiness around you and throughout the
Blessed are you, when you opt for gentleness and
dialogue even when this seems long and difficult.
Blessed are you, when you creatively devise new
ways of donating your time, your tenderness and
gems of hope.
Blessed are you, when you listen with your heart
to detect what is gift in others.
Blessed are you, when you strive to take the first
step, the necessary one to attain peace with
brothers and sisters throughout the world.
Blessed are you, when you keep in your heart
wonderment, openness and a free questioning of
Blessed are you, when you take seriously your
faith in the Risen Christ.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will. We praise you, we bless you, we
adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God,
almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son.
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
You take away the sins of the world receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with
the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our
Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried;
He descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will
come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
