MIA Prayer Intention: All Souls (2 November)
Prayer for the Feast of All Souls from Office for the Dead, Morning and Evening Prayer of the Sisters of Mercy, p863
'God of the living and the dead, through the power of Christ's resurrection you have conquered sin and death forever. Catherine McAuley told us that each day is a step we take towards eternity. May we continue thus from day to day until we take the last step, which will bring us into your presence. Then we shall be reunited with those we love and every tear shall be wiped away.
We ask this through Jesus, our Redeemer and brother.
This year, GCCM (Global Catholic Climate Movement) have invited us to remember the countless number of martyrs who have been killed in their defense of the natural world. Members of the GCCM ecospirituality committee including Rose Macharia rsm have produced a resource for this. Access it here
