Gebete zum Fest des Hl. Patrick 2001

Ablaufplan von P. Martin Löwenstein SJ als pdf

Opening Payer
Let us pray that, like Saint Patrick, we may be loyal to our faith in Christ.
Father in heaven, you sent the great bishop Patrick to the people of Ireland to
share his faith and to spend his life in loving service.
May our lives bear witness to the faith we profess, and our, love bring others to
the peace and joy of your gospel. We ask this through Christ our Lord.Amen.

Prayer over the gifts
Lord our God,
by the power of this sacrament
deepen our love
and strengthen our faith:
as we celebrate the feast of Saint Patrick bind us more and more to each other
in unity and peace.

Father, it is our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you
thanks through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. He is the word through whom
you made the universe, the Saviour you sent to redeem us. By the power of the
Holy Spirit he took flesh and was born of the Virgin Mary. For our sake he
opened his arms on the cross, he put an end to death and revealed the
resurrection. In this he fulfilled your will and won for you a holy people. And so
we join the angels and the saints in proclaiming your glory as we sing:

Concluding Payer
Lord, we heard the word of the Gospel and joined in the praise of your name.
may all we do or say proclaim your glory in imitation of Saint Patrick, who did not
spare himself but gave his whole life to the preaching of your Word. We ask this
through Christ our Lord.
