Highlights of the past fortnight in our Catholic Identity:
In our Masses we are seeking to use language that students can understand and relate to. Here are a selection of prayers we used at Beaconsfield Campus Mass. Let us pray at this time of uncertainty that we will be the hands and heart of God for our world.
Prayer 1: As you know our College theme, chosen by us is: Be the Hands and Heart of God. Have you shared love and kindness this term? Have we been a sign of God’s love and active in building a community where everyone is welcome?
Oh God, as we gather as a community seeking your help in being your hands in the world today, be with us, draw out your Spirit from our open hearts. Inspire us to compassion and hope.
Prayer 2: Prayer at the Gospel:
Jesus be in my mind (‘+’ on forehead). Jesus, be in my speaking (‘+’ on lips). Jesus, be in my heart (‘+’ on heart) and for 2020: Jesus, be in my hands. (‘+’ on hands)
Prayer 3: Our words, actions and hopes are with you now O Lord. Make them into the hands and heart of your Son, Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer 4: We have encountered you Lord in our gathering, singing, listening and sharing of your body and blessing. We are grateful, Through Christ our Lord. All: Amen
