Special intentions for this novena

+ This summer call to prayer consists of seven consecutive nine day novenas. Each novena has a general justice and peace intention, the novena prayer, a short prayer to a saint, and a focus on one of the seven "Works of Justice and Peace". + If you have specific intentions you would like to share with those participating, email me and I will post them on the intentions page. + Justice and peace meditations on the lectionary readings for this novena are posted at http://www.justpeace.org/lectsum2000.htm . It is beneficial to begin a time of prayer with a moment of quietness and recollection. Sometimes a short phrase -- a bible verse, a short prayer -- or a decade of the Rosary can help set this time and space aside for prayer and intercession. The Justpeace Prayer page has a number of helpful links regarding prayer.

If you would like a printed copy of these novenas (suitable for reproducing and distributing in your area), please send 55 cents in postage to Oscar Romero Catholic Worker House, 1524 NW 21st, Oklahoma City, OK 73106.

May this journey be a time of healing and intercession for justice and peace among all peoples.
