Item Description...
"Let us bring our prayers to the Lord."

Each week when the community comes together for Mass, we gather to listen to the Word, partake of the Eucharist, and to pray. The Prayer of the Faithful is the same in terms of our need, but always an opportunity to approach God collectively in a way that reflects the richness of our particular celebration. This series of prayers by Father Michael Kwatera is grounded in the present moment in the church. He draws on the readings, the significance of feasts, and other celebrations. Hes also attuned to the many ways we approach God, in language that is clear and attentive to the oral quality of the prayer.

"To place prayerful words on human lips and in human hearts is a most sacred work," writes Father Kwatera in the introduction. The fruit of this work is a set of texts that invites the community to draw near to God each week in prayer.

The Collegeville Prayer of the Faithful Annual includes a CD-ROM of intercessions that can be easily adapted for parish use. Each prayer is provided in a Word file that allows users to easily personalize the intercessions for their own parish.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Gift for Every Parish  Sep 14, 2006
Since reading these Prayers of the Faithful, I have tried to pay closer attention to the weekly intercessions in my home parish and those I have visited. Before I knew of Fr. Kwatera's work in this area, I found them simply humdrum; now I recognize the missed opportunity for what Pope Benedict has described as "calling for the application of creativity."

In a brief introduction, Fr. Kwatera explains the origin, purpose, and format of the prayer of the faithful and his own efforts to provide "fresh language shaped by the liturgical feasts, seasons and the Sunday Scripture readings." He searches the day's readings for a special word or phrase and links it to the prayer of the faithful through repetition. "In that way, a pattern is developed that draws the worshipers into the intentions and provides a certain rhythmic, lyrical quality to them." Though it would be easy enough to copy Fr. Kwatera's method, there's still the matter of his gift for language. Intercessions for Martin Luther King Jr. holiday contain such phrases as "find deliverance in renewed zeal for justice," and "rid our hearts of the fear and jealousy that threaten peace," and "especially those martyred in the struggle for civil rights."

So, I recommend this work to every parish. As the author suggests, the prayers can be used as is or they can be altered to fit particular circumstances. To that end, the publisher has included a CD containing Microsoft Word files of the text according to calendar date.
