For a renewed spirit of evangelization, that through the Holy Spirit we will bear witness to all that God has done for us by showing great compassion and forgiveness to others . . .

   We pray to the Lord.

For all gathered here, that we may encounter Christ in our Eucharistic celebration, in our families and in our communities . . .

For the healing of racism, that every person throughout the world may come to recognize the value and dignity of all as children of God . . .

For all who have died in the service of our nation, that God's glory will shine upon them, and that we may never forget their great sacrifice . . .

   We pray to the Lord.
