Vol: 45, No.17 2ND SUNDAY OF LENT ( B) February 25 2018  
 
Virgin Mary,/suffered under Pontius Pilate,/was crucified,/died and was buried;/he descended into hell;/on the third day he rose again from the dead;/he ascended into heaven,/and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;/from there he will come to judge the living and the dead./I believe in the Holy Spirit,/the holy catholic Church,/the communion of saints,/the forgiveness of sins,/the resurrection of the body,/and life everlasting. Amen.
PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL
Cel: After having listened to the Word of God let us humbly present our petitions before God our Father. Abraham was tested and his loyalty to God was proved beyond doubt. When asked to sacrifice his son Abraham showed his readiness. Let us now place our petitions before God saying,
Response: Lord, hear our prayer.
1. For the pope, the bishops and the clergy that as pastors of the Church they may be persons of faith and trust in God, we pray … R./
2. For those who undergo times of trials and difficulties that they may never lose their faith in God, we pray … R./
3. For children everywhere that they may grow in their Christian faith under the guidance of their parents and teachers, we pray … R./
4. That the season of Lent may be a time of spiritual renewal for all Christians and that spiritually strengthened they may walk the journey of life with courage and endurance, we pray … R./
5. For all of us present in this Eucharistic assembly that enlightened by the Word of God we may become people of faith and with God’s help we may overcome our trials and difficulties that come on our way, we pray … R./

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord.
For after he had told the disciples of his coming Death, on the holy mountain he manifested to them his glory, to show, even by the testimony of the law and the prophets, that the Passion leads to the glory of the Resurrection.
And so, with the Powers of heaven, we worship you constantly on earth, and before your majesty without end we acclaim:
All: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts...
