6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy are we who trust in the Lord!

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The readings for the Mass are from Jeremiah, Psalm 1, I Corinthians and the Gospel of Luke. Today we follow Jesus down from the mountain to the plain to speak to his apostles and hear the Sermon on the plain – a message of blessings and woes. May we trust in the Lord and find joy and happiness in his ways and wisdom. Now, join us for this reflection with Dina Marie.

Prayer for the sick

Lord Jesus, who went about doing good and healing all, we ask You to bless our friends who are sick. Give them the strength in body, courage in spirit, and patience in pain.

Let them recover their health, so that, restored to the Christian community, they may joyfully praise Your name, for You live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.  

Prayer for Healing

Loving God, You refresh us when we are weary. You restore us when we are broken. You heal us when we are wounded or ill. Hear my prayers for those presently in need of healing, especially my family and my loved ones. I implore you, dear Lord, to grant them health of mind and body. 

Divine healer, by Your life-giving grace, relieve their suffering, and nurture in them a full and complete recovery from their illness or injuries. 

Surround them with Your love and with the great power of Your healing Presence. Amen.
