Prayer for today

Lucy’s chosen prayer for this Palm Sunday comes from the website Face Forward, run by the Catholic Office of Vocations in Columbus, Ohio (

On this day of Great Rejoicing
Lord Jesus Christ, when we welcome
You as our King and Saviour
We also walk in the shadow of your Cross
Hosanna! We cry.
Blessed are you
Who came in God’s name to save us,

Strengthen our faith on this Palm Sunday
So that when the time comes
To carry the cross we might still
Call out to you with heartfelt praise
Give us the grace and the courage
To follow you this Holy Week
From death to resurrection
From darkness to the fullness of light
We need you
Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour
