Sunday Mass on 3 March (THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT)

Introduction (by the Presider)My sisters and brothers, let us bring our prayers to the Lord:

  1. For all of us, as we continue on our journey of renewal this Lent (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.
  2. For those preparing to join the Church through baptism at Easter (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.
  3. For Christians who risk their lives for what they believe (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.
  4. For an end to hatred and violence in our world (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.
  5. For the good care of the homeless and refugees (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.
  6. For milder, drier Spring weather for our farmers and for us all  (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.

The Presider prays for the dead:  For all our people who have died (especially N & N who died recently and N & N whose anniversaries occur  (short pause, then..) Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the Presider)God of wisdom and light, your words guide our lives: hear the prayers we make in faith, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
