As we celebrate one of our Lady’s greatest feasts, the Assumption, we ask her to intercede for our country and our leaders and for all who work for the common good in their communities, especially the advocates for the poor … we pray!
For Pope Francis and the leaders of our Church, that they will be the prophetic voices that the world needs to hear … we pray!
For women in every country, that they will be accorded the dignity and respect that is their right as God’s children … we pray!
For healthy crops and good weather for farmers during this growing season, and for all who toil under the sun … we pray!
For all who suffer from summer storms, floods and wildfires, and for swift aid for those who, themselves, are in harm’s way … we pray!
