PRAYER OF FAITHFULNESS
God of love, you give us life in abundance. R/Grant us the strength to live our lives in solidarity with others.
For those living in poverty who need our help now: R/ We pray that we may be faithful to them, through our loving
acts of charity and justice.
For those on the margins or oppressed: R/ We pray that we might have courage to stand with them as brothers and
For those without a voice or silenced by society: R/ We pray that our actions with them may speak up for truth.
Sustain us, O God, as we seek to remain faithful to all those whose identity as your children are diminished by
poverty and oppression.
We as this through Christ our Lord. Amen

THIRTY THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY
TIME: This Sunday is
the first ‘World
Day of the Poor’. Pope Francis has instituted this new
day as a way
of inviting us to understand that sharing with those living
in poverty “enables
us to understand the deepest truth of the
Gospel”. In his message for the World Day of the Poor, Pope Francis
asks all of
us, whatever our means, to unite in love and in acts of
service to one
another. He explains: “It is my wish that…Christian
will make every effort to create moments of encounter
solidarity and concrete assistance”. Please consider
how you can
create moments of encounter and friendship today.
