Prayer of the Faithful

8. Easter Time

Priest’s Introduction

Dear brothers and sisters,
filled with paschal joy,
let us pray more earnestly to God
that he, who graciously listened
to the prayers and supplications of his beloved Son,
may now be pleased to look upon us in our lowliness.


1. For the shepherds of our souls,
that they may have the strength to govern wisely
the flock entrusted to them by the Good Shepherd,
let us pray to the Lord.

2. For the whole world,
that it may truly know the peace given by Christ,
let us pray to the Lord.

3. For our brothers and sisters who suffer,
that their sorrow may be turned to gladness
which no one can take from them,
let us pray to the Lord.

4. For our own community,
that it may bear witness with great confidence
to the Resurrection of Christ,
let us pray to the Lord.

Priest’s Prayer

O God, who know that our life in this present age
is subject to suffering and need,
hear the desires of those who cry to you
and receive the prayers of those who believe in you.
Through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.
