Please remember in your prayers, Joan Waldren of Holy Name Parish in Kirkland Lake. She recently celebrated 50 years as a CWL member. May she rest in heavenly peace.
Remember in your prayers, CWL members who died in 2021.
We beseech Thee, O Lord, in Thy mercy, to have pity on the soul of Thy handmaid; do Thou, Who hast freed her from the perils of this mortal life, restore to her the portion of everlasting salvation. Through Christ our Lord,
St Anthony of Padua
Our Mother of Perpetual Help
May their souls rest in peace
Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women and blessed is
the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary,
Mother of God, pray for Betty and for all
of us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Eternal rest, grant unto her, O Lord, and let
Perpetual light shine upon her. (3x)
May her soul and the souls of all the faithful
departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
PRAYER FOR HOMELESS PEOPLE
Hear our prayer today for all women, men, boys and girls
who are homeless this day.
For those sleeping under bridges, on park benches, in doorways or bus stations.
For those who can only find shelter for the night but must wander in the daytime.
For families broken because they could not afford to pay the rent.
For those who have no relatives or friends who can take them in.
For those who have no place to keep possessions that remind them who they are.
For those who are afraid and hopeless.
For those who have been betrayed by our social safety net.
For all these people, we pray that you will provide shelter, security and hope.
We pray for those of us with warm houses and comfortable beds
that we not be lulled into complacency and forgetfulness.
Jesus, help us to see your face in the eyes of every homeless person we meet
so that we may be empowered through word and deed,
and through the political means we have,
to bring justice and peace to those who are homeless.
