✝️Simon of Cyrene
Collect for the day:
Simon of Cyrene carried the cross
of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ:
grant that we who have been baptized
into his death and resurrection
may daily take up our cross and follow him;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
During a Vacancy in a Diocese/ Pastoral Charge:
🙏God our Father the giver of every good gift

and guide with your heavenly wisdom
the minds of those responsible for choosing a bishop for this Diocese:
send us a faithful pastor to feed Your flock
and lead us into the way of holiness;
through Jesus our Lord.
Prayers for use during the Coronavirus Outbreak:
🙏Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of Your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in Your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us
from Your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord Jesus Christ,
You taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for You.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated of our love,
and Your love,for Your name’s sake.
