Good Friday 2006 Intercession

To: All Priests and Parish Liturgists

Bishop Patrick J. McGrath asks that the following petition be included in the General Intercessions at Good Friday’s Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion. Its format should easily accommodate its addition to the prayers already found in the Roman Missal/Sacramentary.

For those communities celebrating this liturgy in languages other than English, please feel free to translate this intercession for inclusion in those liturgies. (Spanish translation is provided below.)

XI. For Special Needs

Let us pray, dear friends, for the special needs of our day,
that God who created us in love
will watch over and protect all people of good will.

Almighty and eternal God,
you watch over us all the days of our lives.
Bless our diocese in this year of Jubilee.
In your love bring peace to our world.
safe return home of all in the military,
consolation to victims of disasters,
and respect and dignity to immigrants.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.


XI. Por Las Necesidades Especiales

Queridos hermanos y hermanas,
oremos por las necesidades especiales en este día.
Que Dios que nos ha creado con amor,
proteja y guíe a todas las personas de buena voluntad.

Dios eterno,
Tú que nos proteges, todos los días de nuestra vida.
Bendice a nuestra Diócesis en este año Jubilar.
Que el amor que Tú, nos das traiga paz a nuestro mundo.
Un seguro y feliz retorno, de las personas en las fuerzas armadas,
consuela a las víctimas de los desastres.
Y respeto y dignidad por los inmigrantes.
Todo esto te lo pedimos, por Cristo Nuestro Señor,
que vive y reina contigo eternamente.
