Liturgical notes

In the General Intercessions or the Prayer of the Faithful, the people respond in a certain way to the word of God which they have welcomed in faith and, exercising the office of their baptismal priesthood, offer prayers to God for the salvation of all. It is fitting that such a prayer be included, as a rule, in Masses celebrated with a congregation, so that petitions will be offered for the holy Church, for civil authorities, for those weighed down by various needs, for all men and women, and for the salvation of the whole world.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §69 

Inspired by the words of St Paul in today’s second reading, the Church has long prayed for everyone. This intercession for the many needs of the world is a significant role of all the priestly people of God. The Church expects that each parish community would prepare their own prayers so that all the community can join in the sacred intercessory prayer at the Sunday Eucharist.

‘You have laid down your precepts to be carefully kept; may my ways be firm in keeping your statutes.’
