“Being Christian is living and witnessing to faith in prayer, in works of charity, in promoting justice, in doing good. The whole of our life must pass through the narrow door which is Christ.” – Pope Francis
Interceding for our ministry and our family of benefactors involves all types of prayer. In addition to our weekly prayers for you, Cross Catholic Outreach has set aside a day specifically to lift up our ministry friends. This Day of Prayer will take place on Thursday, August 15, and will focus on intercession for your intentions and the continued advancement of God’s will.
On August 15, The Feast Day of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother Mary, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for your intentions by Cardinal Peter Turkson and Cardinal Robert Sarah, at the request of the priests and staff of Cross Catholic Outreach.
Your prayer requests for the Day of Prayer and this special Mass can be submitted by completing the section below.
” We set forth our petitions before God, not in order to make known to Him our needs and desires, but rather so that we ourselves may realize that in these things it is necessary to turn to God for help. “ – St Thomas Aquinas
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that
anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my mother:
to thee do I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear
and answer me.
