Lord, I pray for those who are suffering with debilitating illnesses, such as cancer. I pray for those who care for them bodily, spiritually, and emotionally. May the communal hands of healing descend upon all those who suffer.

Lord I pray for all the victims fires, floods, and hurricanes in these recent times in our country. Please help responders and others bring compassionate hearts to those in need, and the families who grieve. Please help survivors rebuild their lives in your name.
We offer these prayers for your intentions and needs.
Fr. Tony Lalli SX opened a recent meeting with this prayer By Fr. Andy Alexander SJ:
God of us all, may we be healed and brought together as your people. It was the desire Jesus expressed in his prayer to you the night before he died – that we all would be one. Help us turn to you in faith, that we might repent of all our divisiveness and that we might seek forgiveness and greater unity. May your Spirit inspire us to see the common good, over our own individual good. May we be martyrs – at least witnesses – of the self-sacrificing love you shared with us in Jesus, who died for all of our sins. Let reconciliation begin in our homes and in our closest relationships. May unity always be more important than victory, forgiveness always be sought before judgments, and may solidarity guide our hearts to care for those most on the margins and most in need of our love.Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are. John 17:11
