Elementary:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Imagine your loved ones sitting beside you. Now think about all those people who choose to or who must live alone. In a time of pandemic, we are asked to separate ourselves for the protection of all.  Each of us will have our "alone" days or perhaps maybe some "lonely" days.

Let's pray:

I live alone, dear Lord.

Stay with me in all my needs,

Guide me.

Bless me with good health,

For these I pray

To carry on my life

From day to day.

May my thoughts and my deeds.

kind and unselfish,

May I help my neighbours in need.

If sickness or accidents come their way,

Hear my prayer Lord,

Hear my call.

And when I'm feeling low

Or very sad,

Send happy voices

to lift up my spirits

And make me glad.

I am lonely sometimes, Dear Lord,

Yet have no fear,

Because I feel You Jesus

Ever near.

Amen

Mary, Mother of God …  pray for us that we feel you and Jesus with us when we are alone or lonely.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.



High Schools: ​

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Today think of the word "family" – it can mean a lot of things sometimes linked with home, friends, community and more.

We also recognize that some people want to or "have to" live alone.  Each of us will have our "alone" days and sometimes, like during a pandemic, we are asked to live alone to protect others – but we do not have to be lonely.

There are many ways we can reach out to one another through technologies from email to snail mail letters (gasp), from Skype to Zoom, from cell to landline, from smiling across the street to waving from your car and much more …

Being alone does not have to mean being lonely – and yet some of us are.

Here is a prayer written by someone who lives alone but is not lonely:

I live alone, dear Lord.

Stay by my side.

In all my daily needs,

Please be my guide.

Grant me good health,

For that I pray

To carry on my work

From day to day.

Keep pure my mind,

My thoughts and my deeds.

Let me be kind and unselfish,

towards my neighbours in need.

If sickness or an accident befall,

Then I pray loving Lord,

Hear my call.

 And when I'm feeling low

Or in despair,

Send someone to lift my heart

And help my prayer.

I live alone, Dear Lord,

Yet have no fear,

Because I feel Your presence

Ever near.

Amen

Mary you must have felt alone and powerless as you watched Jesus go to the cross. You know how we feel sometimes, holy Mary, Mother of God …  pray for us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
