Prayers for World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday
And Our Special Intentions

Today’s Psalm helps us see how important each of us is to the Lord, especially when we are in need: “The Lord hears the cry of the poor.... The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; and those who are crushed in spirit He saves” (Psalm 34:18-19). In our own families and neighborhoods, we can think of those who need our listening hearts, our kind compassion. Those in our mission family cry out also for the Lord’s caring and peace.       Pontifical Mission Society
