Lent II

Posted on February 26th, 2018 by Rev. John Hyatt, S.J.

Almighty and ever faithful God:
In this season of Lent we ask you to open our ears
and help us listen to Jesus, the Beloved Son,
in whom you are well pleased.
Give us your Spirit, and the strength
to embrace the mystery of the cross,
so that we may come to immortal life
and share in Christ’s transfigured glory.

Lent I

Posted on February 18th, 2018 by Rev. John Hyatt, S.J.

Almighty God,
Because you formed us from the dust of the earth
You know well that sin has scarred our human nature.
Strengthen us at the beginning of Lent.
Make us victorious with Christ,
More powerful than the temptations of evil
So that at last we may come, in the power of the Spirit,
To the happy celebration of Easter.

8th Sunday, Ordinary Time

O God, good and merciful, we thank you, for you loved the world so much that you gave us Jesus your Son.
You call us to trust you, as children trust their mothers and fathers.
We thank you for judging us with mercy and compassion.
Please help us to avoid false judgments, and to show mercy to others.
Please help us to avoid greed.
By the power of your Spirit please help us to share our blessings with one another.
This we pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Forgive us… as we forgive others

Posted on February 18th, 2017 by Rev. John Hyatt, S.J.

Almighty God,
Open our hearts to the gift of your Spirit,
And break within us the chains of violence and hatred,
So that, free to love even our enemies,
We may share in the triumph of good over evil
And bear witness with our lives
To the Gospel of peace.
