The Arizona Rosary Celebration Needs Your Prayers
Prayer for Persecuted Christians
O God of all the nations, the One God who is and was and always will be, in your providence you willed that your Church be united to the suffering of your Son. Look with mercy on your servants who are persecuted for their faith in you. Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ. Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples. May your Spirit open conversion for those who contradict your will, that we may live in harmony. Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom, and to always seek your will in our lives. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer composed by
Archbishop William E. Lori
Supreme Chaplain, Knights of Columbus
Prayer Intentions Play a Major Role
in the Arizona Rosary Celebration
Everyone desires to share with the Lord their deepest heartfelt desires, wishes, intentions, devotions, and prayers. The Arizona Rosary Celebration is the place to bring those intentions and prayers. As part of the Arizona Rosary Celebration prayer campaign, the faithful are encouraged to submit their prayer intentions. The prayers will be offered up during the celebration. Every intention submitted will also be included in the prayers of the Charismatic Renewal Ministries throughout the coming year. So, through the power of the prayers of thousands, one's own intentions can be included and offered up to God, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through the intercession of His mother Mary, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
To have your prayer intentions included among those offered during the Rosary Celebration, simply write it out on any piece of paper, and bring it with you to the celebration in either Tucson or Phoenix and place it in the intention box. If you can't make it to the Arizona Rosary Celebration, look for a prayer intention box in the vestibule of your local parish. They will be collected locally and taken to the celebration.
Prayers and Intentions
(Updates monthly, May to October)
Pray this short prayer daily:
Lord, no one who has obeyed and taken up their cross
has been sent away from you unsatisfied.
You alone are God and the source of all goodness, and we ask that you assist us in spreading the word about the annual Knights of Columbus Arizona Rosary Celebration. We also beg that you help the community to support this event financially. Amen.
