Dear friends, Jesus calms our fears and gives us peace. We pray for all whose lives are filled with stress, fear and anxiety.
- May the Church learn from Pope Francis to keep her eyes on Jesus, who alone brings us unity and peace. Let us pray to the Lord. Grant this, almighty God.
- May we, in in the Diocese of Paisley pray for vocations to the priesthood, so that the mercy of Jesus can be celebrated in the Eucharist, and his compassion be proclaimed in the preaching of his Gospel. Let us pray to the Lord. Grant this, almighty God.
- May we value and hold fast to our Christian faith which gives meaning to our lives, as at the same time we pray fervently for our brothers and sisters who endure terrible persecution and denial of rights for their faith in Jesus in the Middle East, and across Asia and Africa. Let us pray to the Lord. Grant this, almighty God.
- May our departed parishioners, relatives and friends enter the Kingdom of Heaven, remembering especially today, Joe Walters, Doreen Graham, Anne McGuigan, John Dickson, Frank McGuinness, Eric Reilly, Anne McGuire, Sheila McGeehan and Doreen Scott. Let us pray to the Lord. Grant this, almighty God.
- Let us pray to our Lady of Paisley for Bishop Keenan: Hail Mary….
Almighty God, in the stillness of prayer you come to us and reveal your love. Show us your mercy, and grant us the fullness of your life through Jesus, your Son, who lives and reigns, forever and ever. Amen.
