Prayers of the Faithful – Sun 14 Nov – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Prayers of the Faithful – Sun 14 Nov – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Introduction:

As the Church’s year draws to a close, the readings this Sunday speak both of endings and eternal beginnings. All of them offer hope and direction to communities living in the midst of turbulent change and uncertainty.

This week, let us pray for each other, that we will forever keep the Lord in our sight. May we be living signs of Christ’s love and forgiveness in our world, and may we face these challenging times with confidence.

Prayers of the Faithful:

Celebrant:   Dear friends, as we await the coming of the Son of Man, let us pray in peace for the whole of creation.
