    The Pope’s Intentions for August

    Universal:   That refugees, forced by violence to abandon their homes, may find a generous welcome and the protection of their rights.

    For Evangelisation:  That Christians in Oceania may joyfully announce the faith to all the people of that region.

     

    The Eucharist

    The Eucharist is not only the memorial of the death and resurection of the Lord, but also a sign and foretaste of the final unity of the Kingdom of God. From celebration to celebration, God’s pilgrim people advances towards the great banquet in heaven, ‘when all the elect will be seated at the table of the kingdom’. It is the Lord of Glory who comes to us in the Eucharist, and we anticipate there ‘the joys of the age to come’.

    We celebrate together the communion we already share, but we are also very aware of the imperfection of our unity, even among Catholics gathered to share together the one Bread of Life. We come forward to receive Holy Communion as a foretaste of our future unity as God’s pilgrim people, and our ‘Amen’ should include a real commitment to the fullness of that unity.

    It is as well to remember, in the pain, sorrow and frustration of our journey together as fellow Christians, yearning for unity and yet still disunited, that fullness of communion is a gift of God’s grace, and that we will have to ‘wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ’.  This does not mean, of course, that we simply sit and wait.  God wills to work through us, and the Eucharist consecrates those who take part in it to be instruments and ambassadors of reconciliaton.

    (One Bread One Body n.44)

    Prayer for Grandparents

    Lord Jesus,

    you were born of the Virgin Mary,

    the daughter of Saints Joachim and Anne.

    Look with love on grandparents the world over.

    Protect them! They are a source of enrichment

    for families, for the Church and for all of society.

    Support them! As they grow older,

    may they continue to be for their families

    stong pillars of Gospel faith,

    guardian of noble domestic ideals,

    living treasures of sound religious traditions.

    Make them teachers of wisdom and courage,

    that they may pass on to future generations the fruits

    of their mature human and spiritual experience.

     

    Lord Jesus,

    help families and society

    to value the presence and roles of grandparents.

    May they never be ignored or excluded,

    but always encounter respect and love.

    Help them to live serenely and to feel welcomed

    in all the years of life which you give them.

    Mary, Mother of all the living,

    keep grandparents constantly in your care,

    accompany them on their earthly pilgrimage,

    and by your prayers, grant that all families

    may one day be reunited in our heavenly homeland,

    where you await all humanity

    for the great embrace of life without end. Amen!

    Pope Emeritus Benedict XV1

    The Parable of the Sower

    Remember us, O Lord, by your loving care!

    Jesus taught his disciples with parables.

    He said to them, “Listen!

    One day a farmer went out sowing…”

     

    So that your Word in us, Lord,

    does not fall on the roadside and Satan remove it from our hearts

    We pray to you.

     

    So that your Word in us, Lord,

    does not fall on rocky ground and we be fickle at our first temptation,

    We pray to you.

     

    So that your Word in us, Lord,

    does not fall among thorns and the cares of life

    and the enticement or riches choke it,

    We pray to you.

     

    So that your Word in us, Lord,

    falls on rich and fertile soil and we yeild fruit in abundance

    We pray to you.

     

    Lord Jesus,

    Sower of all the good that is in the world,

    place in us the seeds of goodness and justice.

    Let our land yield a harvest of brotherly love

    and sheaves of joy for eternal life.

     (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
