18th Sunday in Ordinary time
Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples,
who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied.
Huge crowds followed Jesus. He felt compassion for them and
healed the sick. He saw that they were hungry and, rather than send
them away empty, he gave them bread and fish in abundance...
Those who ate were about five thousand.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us or trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Please continue to pray for all affected by the Corona Virus, that those afflicted may receive healing and deliverance, safety for those most vulnerable, may they learn to trust in God, for those tending to their care and those that have died, through the Mercy of God may they Rest in Peace. For these we offer the following Prayer.
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana. Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness. For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen
