ONCE A WEEK MASS - SEPTEMBER 29, 2020
Broadcast at 8 AM from St. Cyprian Church
PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION – My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Prayers & Resources during this Time
BELL CALLS FOR PRAYER - With the closing of our Churches, Cardinal Cupich has asked that we have the experience of being united in prayer, even when we are isolated. By pausing and lifting up in prayer all those affected by the pandemic, we can offer our support to those in need and let them know that they are not alone. The Cardinal is asking us to pray five times a day with the prayer being dedicated to a specific group particularly impacted by the pandemic. Our church bells will ring at those hours to remind us to show our solidarity in prayer.
The prayer intentions for each hour of prayer follow:
9 AM – Prayer for those infected with the virus and all who are ill.
Lord, place your healing hand on those who suffer illness. Bring them to full health and ease their anxious hearts. May our prayer and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary encourage them that they are not alone. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
Noon – Prayer for health care workers and those attending to the sick.
Lord, we are ennobled by those who put their lives at risk in caring for the sick. Keep them safe and embolden them when they are weary. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
3 PM – Prayer for first responders and essential workers.
Lord, we pray for those who run to danger and keep us safe and those who serve the common good. Embrace them with your mantle of protection and comfort the fears of their families. We ask this in Jesus’ name. AMEN!
6 PM – Prayer for people of every nation and their leaders.
Lord, the pandemic opens our eyes to each other as brother and sisters in one human family. We pray for people of every nation and their leaders, asking that they be inspired to seek the good of all and quell the voices of division. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
9 PM – Prayer for those who have died today.
Lord, we grieve the passing of our sisters and brothers who have died this day. We commend them to your tender mercy, confident that nothing, not even death, will separate us from your love. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
The parish staff and I will uplift you in prayer each and every day. Pray for each other. United in faith, with our eyes fixed on the Cross, we can overcome this time of peril and be stronger in our faith and love for each other.
Father Paul Cao
Pastor, St. Mother Guerin Parish
