For our Church throughout the world, that nourished by the Eucharist we will become witnesses to God's love for all.
For the hungry in every nation, including our own, for families and children without enough to eat, for the elderly alone and starving.
For those in our community who are unable to join us at this celebration and for the ministers of Communion who go to them with our prayers and the Eucharist from this table.
For our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and all those who have loved us and been like fathers to us, those who are living and those who have passed on to eternal life.
For an end to war and violence, for the growth of trust among all peoples and for the deepening of the foundations of international peace.
For safety and security for all our military men and women; for the innocent victims of war.
For for those who have died, especially for Rosemary O'Brien, Helen Edwards, Carlene Michalowske, and Patricia Muckerheide, who died this past week.
