Prayer of the Faithful:


November 17 - 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time / World Day of the Poor


For the Church, as we close this liturgical year, in gratitude for all of the blessings we have received, we pray to the Lord.


For nations and societies, that we may be more intent on building bridges rather than creating divisions, we pray to the Lord.


For the world’s poor, for the disadvantaged, for those on the margins of society, for those experiencing violence and oppression, for the unemployed, and for all those who find themselves isolated and forgotten, we entrust them to God’s loving care.


For all who are sick, for their healing and wholeness, we pray to the Lord.


For all who are dying or have died, that they may enter into life everlasting with God, we pray to the Lord.
