Popes

Lord,

Today as we celebrate the Feast of the Divine Mercy we ask Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II to intercede for us, for your mercy and love. Help us Lord to always be faithful to you and to our church.

We pray for our church leaders, Saint Peter our first pope, and the many leaders of the church who have been recognised as saints in the work they have done in your name, especially Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II today.

We pray for our Holy Father Pope Francis, that as the leader of our church he is guided by the Holy Spirit to enable him to do your will through us. Help him Lord with this difficult task in this ever changing world- where the needs of all are numerous and uncertain. Lord keep him strong in mind and spirit as he applies wisdom to all who seek it. Keep him safe from all evil as he nourishes the life in Your church, and in Your people. As he canonises Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II his predecessors, may they intercede in heaven to you Lord for his requests- mindful that “Not my will but yours be done”. We offer our prayers to you for a welcome, transparent and loving church where we can all live out your Gospel. Through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
