Prayer Calendar April 1

Intention for today

That we may be convinced that the faithful observance of poverty is an important factor contributing to the joyful experience of common life. (Art. 23)

Prayer of intercesion: We pray for

That in all areas of formation we may place greater stress on loving one another than on performance or meeting expecta­tions.

For the Church and for our Holy Father.

For our local communities as they share their Christian values, celebrate the Eucharist and pray together.

For our parents, living and deceased.
