Heavenly Father,

As we begin summer, please watch over us in our outdoor activities. We humbly ask your favor on all  fathers living and dead. May You bless this country as we proudly display our flag on Flag Day. We pray for the end of abortion and those affected by wars. We implore Your Wisdom on those working to eradicate disease. We request the intercession of Sts Peter, Paul and Barnabas in our salvation. We recall the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. In honor of The Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi, we appeal to You

Amen.
