Universal Prayer for Sunday and weekday Masses

Prayers of the faithful


These prayers are exactly what their name suggests – prayers of the gathered faithful. In praying this prayer, the faithful are carrying out their role of praying for the entire world as well as for the needs of the local community. No two congregations will have exactly the same prayers, since their perception of the world's needs and of the local community will vary. Therefore they are written anew for each Sunday and weekly celebrations.

Welcome to the First Week of Advent.

We mark through prayer the release of the first two documents of the Second Vatican Council 60 years ago.

Our prayer continues with urgency for peace in the Holy Land where Jesus was born, lived and died for our Salvation, and rose for our eternal life in him.
