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

Yesterday was the World Day of Prayer for Vocations and Mother's Day.  We pray for people who can live out their vocations to the fullest empower by God's love.

Today think of the word "family". We recognize that some people "want to" or "have to" live alone.  Each of us will have our "alone" days as well as day together with others.

Here is a prayer written by someone who lives alone:

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,

Lift up my heart

And help my prayer.

I live alone, Dear Lord,

Yet have no fear,

Because I feel Your presence

Ever near.


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

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