Reflection

 

Let us pray for other people

 

 

Source of life, God of love, let your salvation surround the living who walk under the shadow of death and the dead who are gloriously alive.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to your dying children. By simple faith in your undying grace may they have peace in the hour of their departing.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to people who are caught up in the rawness of a new grief. Enable them to weep well, free from bitterness or despair.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to all who care for the dying; in hospitals or at home, in a hospice or on a battlefield; give them your quiet strength.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to ministers, priests and Sisters who pray with the dying, minister last rites, or sit holding a hand.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to those who fight against untimely death. Those who spend their days working for the elimination of cancer, aids, many diseases; the carnage on our highways, and the butchery of warfare.

Great Spirit-Friend,

Come with your life and light.

 

Be close to the preachers of the gospel of peace. By your tireless Spirit, may inadequate words take flesh and become powerful agents in helping people to begin living eternal life now. Through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen!

 Can we raise trapped women from their living “death?”

  ACTION

 

 Is there a way I can involve my parish, my friends, in the struggle against human trafficking?

  

Can I bring a possession back to “life” instead of throwing it away?
