Special Intention for the Prayer of the Faithful for Iraq
Let us unite our voices and hearts before the Lord of peace. May the light of Christ fill the hearts of all suffering people with consolation and hope. May the Gospel message of Peace, through our prayers, inspire the leaders of Iraq to sacrifice personal interests for the common good and welfare.

Where appropriate, the following prayer may also be used within Mass or at parish meetings or gatherings:

The plight of the Church in Iraq, and throughout the Middle East,
is deep and the suffering of Christians
is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you Lord
to spare their lives, and to grant them patience,
and courage to continue their witness of Christian values
with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is the foundation of life;
Grant peace and stability that will enable all people
to live with each other without fear and anxiety,
and with dignity and joy.
Glory to Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Bishop Olson has written a letter for the Diocese of Fort Worth about the crisis at our border regarding the influx
unaccompanied immigrant minors, which we commend to all parishioners. Please follow the link below.

Prayer For Children Seeking Refuge From Violence

Merciful Lord,
Your own Son was delivered into the
hands of the wicked,
yet he prayed for his persecutors
and overcame hatred with the blood
of the cross.
Relieve the sufferings of the children
seeking refuge in this country from
oppression and violence in their
In your mercy, strengthen them in
their weakness with signs of your love
in the compassionate care they
receive as strangers in this land.
Grant them and their familiesí peace of mind and a renewed faith in your
protection and care.
Protect them, and all children, from the violence of others,
keep them safe from the weapons of hate,
and restore tranquility and peace in the Americas and throughout the world.
We ask this through Christ of Lord - Amen
New Saints

Recognizing that Blessed John XXIII and John Paul II have widespread reputations for holiness and that years of studying their lives and actions have proven their exceptional virtue, Pope Francis announced he would declare his two predecessors saints at a single ceremony on April 27. Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for Saints' Causes, read the biographies and highlighted the "service to peace" and the impact both popes had "inside and outside the Christian community" at times of great cultural, political and religious transformation.  The testimonies of their lives, "completely dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel, shine in the church and reverberate in the history of the world as examples of hope and light," the cardinal said.
