Dear New Knight Intercessor,
Thank you for offering to give of your time and heart to pray for the intentions of our Bishop O’Connell School Community and loved ones. Fr. Thompson encourages us to heed St. Louis de Montfort's instruction to offer up our prayers always along with all the intentions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother, so that no need will go without prayer and no prayer will go without Mary's perfecting touch. By praying with and for each other, we also grow in our personal faith, hope and charity.
Prayer requests will be gathered into a single email that is sent to your inbox on Wednesdays along with suggested prayers. You are invited to use the included prayers or to pray as your heart directs at a time of your choosing.
If you have a prayer request for someone please obtain permission before submitting their name. At times an individual needs to remain anonymous and, in that case, please let us know and we will pray in general for them as a relative or friend of a Prayer Connection member. You are encouraged to forward a copy of the Prayer Connection email to the person for whom you asked us to pray so they will know how we are praying for them.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered at the Friday 7 a.m. Mass for all prayer requests and special intentions of the Knights Intercessors Prayer Community. If there is a day off or a school Mass on a Friday, the Mass offered will be moved to Thursday.
For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy. ~ Saint Therese of Lisieux
Thank you for joining us in prayer,
Rev. Gregory Thompson (DJO Chaplain)
