My parish’s last two writers have included these in the Sunday intercessions the past two weeks:
That members of the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish know that the Lord desires to answer our prayers and we only need to ask, to seek, to knock for his response – We pray
That our parish community may be rich in what matters to God by becoming an active force for good in the world, we pray.
The GIRM states:
70. The series of intentions is usually to be:
a) for the needs of the Church;
b) for public authorities and the salvation of the whole world;
c) for those burdened by any kind of difficulty;
d) for the local community.
My sense is that the “local community” could include the parish, but more often is for those in the locality of the faith community. In other words, the local needy.
I’m not a big fan of a community praying for itself in such general terms, but it does appear to be within the bounds as given by the universal Church.
Suppose you sit in the chair and give a ruling as your parish liturgist. Let these intercessions remain? Edit them? Permit them once in a while? Ban them?
