In Need of Your Prayers this Week

O God, who in your providential design
willed that your Church be built
upon blessed Peter, whom you set over the other Apostles,
look with favour, we pray, on FRANCIS our Pope,
and grant that he, whom you have made Peter's successor,
may be for your people a visible source and foundation of unity in faith and of communion.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Please pray for members of the Parish and their friends who have been most recently added to our prayer list for the sick:
You will find them all listed on the current Parish bulletin. BULLETIN

Also, the the sick and elderly residents of Menzieshill House, and the patients and staff of Roxburghe House.

Please add the names of your sick and housebound to the April list in the book by the statue of St. Anthony at the back of the church, and if you know of any parishioner who is housebound, please speak to a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society to arrange Holy Communion.

Our Lady of Lourdes, Pray for Them.

We also commend to your prayers the souls of those recently deceased, or whose anniversaries occur at this time:

Mairead McCann, R.I.P.

"Eternal life grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace."

Yvonne Adams, Florence Keillor, and all whose anniversaries occur about this time.
Grant to your faithful people pardon and peace, that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind. We ask this through Christ Our Lord Amen


One of the best known & loved prayers is the 'Serenity Prayer', composed by Reinhold Niebuhr (1943):

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
