August 6 ~ The Transformation

+ May the Church radiate the beauty of the transfigured Jesus through her preaching, teaching, and social outreach.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ We pray for our nation, that your love and compassion will bring truth, justice and growing harmony to our land.  May it begin with us.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ Through the efforts of civil leaders, may poverty and injustice be transfigured.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ May your kingdom come, your will be done here on earth - today, this very moment - within each of us.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ Bless our gifts of backpacks and school supplies which we are collecting for the children living in Mary's Place shelters.  Bless with your love all the children there who will receive them.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ For the grace to see only Jesus in our lives and to listen closely to him.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick, especially Louise Galassi.  We pray also for all  those who have died.    Jesus, our light and life, we pray.

+ In thankfulness for all that is written in our Parish Book of Thanksgiving.  We pray also for the intentions written in the Parish Book of Intercessions and those we hold in the silence of our hearts.  Jesus, our light and life, we pray.
