World Marriage Day - Mass Intercessions February 8, 2009




From the Book of Blessing, The Roman Ritual New York: Catholic Book Publishing Co.

Celebrant: In the tender plan of His providence, God our almighty Father has given married love, its faithfulness (and its fruitfulness), a special significance in the history of salvation.
Let us therefore call upon Him saying: Lord hear our prayer.

For our Holy Father, our bishops and all priests and religious, that they may be faithful in their call to fidelity and service.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For all married couples, that God give them comfort and strength in each other and joy in their children.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For all those preparing for marriage, that God guide them to a deep appreciation of this Sacrament.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For widows and widowers, that God may comfort them with compassion.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For those who suffer the pain of a troubled marriage, separation or divorce, that God guide them into a future filled with hope.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For a greater respect for the dignity of marriage and family in our nation and society.

Let us pray to the Lord.

For all our deceased family members and those of our parish who have died in faith.
Let us pray to the Lord.
