This morning, I’m praying for the soul of my friend, Fr. Rich Colgan, CSP. Today is also the Feast of St. Phillip Neri. Fr. Rich served at St. Phillip Neri parish in Portland for some time as well. This morning’s intercessions spoke loudly to me and so I share those with you. Please add your own intentions as well.

Christ is the Good Shepherd who laid down his life for his sheep. Let us praise and thank him as we pray:

Nourish your people, Lord.

Christ, you decided to show your merciful love through your holy shepherds, – let your mercy always reach us through them.
Nourish your people, Lord.

Through your vicars you continue to perform the ministry of shepherd of souls, – direct us always through our leaders.
Nourish your people, Lord.

Through your holy ones, the leaders of your people, you served as physician of our bodies and our spirits, – continue to fulfill your ministry of life and holiness in us.
Nourish your people, Lord.

You taught your flock through the prudence and love of your saints, – grant us continual growth in holiness under the direction of our pastors.
Nourish your people, Lord.
