    Come to Me Like a Cry of Joy
    When my life sinks in sadness,
    come to me like a cry of joy.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!

    When my heart is as hard as a rock,
    come to me like a dew of springtime.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!

    When noise invades my haven,
    come to me like an oasis of silence.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!

    When the wind of hate rises within me,
    come to me like a kiss of pardon.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!

    When I am sinking into the darkness of death,
    come to me like a child’s smile.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!

    And when the earth encloses me in its arms,
    open for me the doors of your mercy.
    Come, Lord Jesus Christ!     (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)

    Give them a full and happy youth;
    open their hearts to accept not only the suffering
    but also the joy of the world.

    Let us pray for all married people:
    who have promised before Christ
    to be faithful to each other;
    May the fervor of their love show to the world
    the tenderness of Christ Jesus toward his Church.

    Let us pray for all those who are single:
    because of the Kingdom of heaven;
    Support them in the joy of their vocation,
    that their lives may show to the world the Kingdom
    that is to come.

    Let us pray for all those in the autumn of life:
    Grant them a peaceful and happy old age;
    guide their steps on the road to peace.

    Let us pray for all those who have no family and home:
    Show the gentleness of your presence;
    to all who live alone and have no hope but you.

    Glory to you, Father

    May you blessed, Father,

    and because the heart that you have given me
    you held, first of all, in your own hands!
    Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

    May you be blessed, Father,
    for the soul that you have given me,
    because your love has fashioned it
    in the image of Jesus, your first-born Son!
    Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

    May you be blessed, Father,
    for the body that you have given me,
    because you will call it to live eternally
    in the glory of your resurrection!
    Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

    O Father of Jesus and source of the Spirit,
    you who loved me in Christ
    even before the world was created,
    you who are the source of my whole being
    and the root of every good thing that grows in me:
    because I was born in your heart,
    let my whole life be only a return to you –
    to your heart, where I will finally know
    the peace of my heart.       (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)

    You were Moved to Pity
    Lord, have mercy
    You were moved to pity, Lord,
    and your heart beat more quickly,
    when you saw the tears of the widow of Nain.
    To those who are sad today
    repeat the words of old, “Do not cry”,
    and heal the sadness of our hearts,
    we beg you.
    Lord, have mercy.

    You were moved to pity, Lord,
    when you saw the tears of Martha and Mary.
    You yourself wept at your friend’s tomb!
    Because you are our life and our resurrection
    open a door of hope to each of our troubles,
    we beg you.
    Lord, have mercy.

    Lord, Jesus,
    no sorrow is a stanger to you
    and all suffering finds the road to your heart.

    Consider the misery of people:
    let not their sufferings be in vain,
    let them be joined to the merits of your passion
    and to your resurrection.    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
