Blessing for one another in our families

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May He look upon you with kindness,
and give you His peace.

Prayer for those alone
‘Alone but not afraid’

I live alone, dear Lord, stay by my side,
in all my daily needs be Thou my Guide.
Grant me good health, for that indeed, I pray,
to carry on my work from day to day.
Keep pure my mind, my thoughts, my every deed,
let me be kind, unselfish in my neighbour's need.
Spare me from fire, malicious tongues
from thieves, from fear and evil ones.
If sickness or an accident befall
then humbly Lord I pray, hear thou my call.
And when I’m feeling low or in despair.
lift up my heart and help me in my prayer.
I live alone, Dear Lord, yet have no fear
Because I feel your presence ever near.

Family Prayer in time of pandemic

Lord Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.”
At your command the sick were made well again.
Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of this virus, that we may experience your healing love. Lord, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and give us your peace.
In your mercy Lord, hear our prayer.

Sunday Readings - 7th March
First Reading
A reading from the book of  Exodus.         
God spoke all these words. He said,
‘I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
‘You shall have no gods except me.
‘You shall not make yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything in heaven or on earth beneath or in the waters under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God and I punish the father’s fault in the sons, the grandsons, and the great-grandsons of those who hate me; but I show kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
‘You shall not utter the name of the Lord your God to misuse it, for the Lord will not leave unpunished the man who utters his name to misuse it.
‘Remember the sabbath day and keep it holy. For six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath for the Lord your God.  You shall do no work that day, neither you nor your son nor your daughter nor your servants, men or women, nor your animals nor the stranger who lives with you. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth and the sea and all that these hold, but on the seventh day he rested; that is why the Lord has blessed the sabbath day and made it sacred.
‘Honour your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God has given to you.
‘You shall not kill.
‘You shall not commit adultery.
‘You shall not steal.
‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
‘You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his servant, man or woman, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is his.’
The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm              
Response:     You, Lord, have the message of eternal life.
1. The law of the Lord is perfect,
it revives the soul.
The rule of the Lord is to be trusted,
it gives wisdom to the simple.      Response
2. The precepts of the Lord are right,
they gladden the heart.
The command of the Lord is clear,
it gives light to the eyes.                 Response
3. The fear of the Lord is holy,
abiding for ever.
The decrees of the Lord are truth
and all of them just.                        Response
4. They are more to be desired than gold,
than the purest of gold
and sweeter are they than honey,
than honey from the comb.           Response

Second Reading
A reading from the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians.
While the Jews demand miracles and the Greeks look for wisdom, here are we preaching a crucified Christ; to the Jews an obstacle that they cannot get over, to the pagans madness, but to those who have been called, whether they are Jews or Greeks, a Christ who is the power and

the wisdom of God. For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
The Word of the Lord.

Gospel  Acclamation           
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory!
I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord,
whoever believes in me will never die.
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory!

A reading from the holy Gospel according to John.  
Just before the Jewish Passover Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and in the Temple he found people selling cattle and sheep and pigeons, and the money changers sitting at their counters there. Making a whip out of some cord, he drove them all out of the Temple, cattle and sheep as well, scattered the money changers’ coins, knocked their tables over and said to the pigeon-sellers, ‘Take all this out of here and stop turning my Father’s house into a market.’ Then his disciples remembered the words of scripture: Zeal for your house will devour me. The Jews intervened and said, ‘What sign can you show us to justify what you have done?’ Jesus answered, ‘Destroy this sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up.’ The Jews replied, ‘It has taken forty-six years to build this sanctuary: are you going to raise it up in three days?’ But he was speaking of the sanctuary that was his body, and when Jesus rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture and the words he had said.
During his stay in Jerusalem for the Passover many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he gave, but Jesus knew them all and did not trust himself to them; he never needed evidence about any man; he could tell what a man had in him
