Roman Catholic Communities of Clitheroe, Sabden & Dunsop Bridge in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire
6th October 2019 – 27th Sunday in Ordinary time
During this month, Pope Francis has called the whole Church to reflect upon our response to Jesus Christ’s command to ‘go and make disciples of all the peoples’ by calling for October to be an ‘Extraordinary Month of Mission,’ celebrated throughout the world. Please make this a wonderful moment of prayer, joy and solidarity with Catholics across the globe by joining with Pope Francis and paying this prayer with him every day of October.
God our Father, when your Son Jesus Christ rose from the dead, he commissioned his followers to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’.
Through our Baptism you send us out to continue this mission among all peoples.
Empower us by the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be courageous and enthusiastic in bearing witness to the Gospel, so that the mission entrusted to us, which is still far from completion, may bring life and light to the world.
May all peoples experience the saving love and generous mercy of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
