Weigel’s petitions missed marriage and family

I generally agree with George Weigel, but in his recent column, “Lord, please don’t hear this” (CR, Jan 21), I thought he overstated the adequacy of his list of Mass petitions when he said his list “covers the most important bases.”

In this age in which marriage and family, i.e., the domestic church, are under such serious attack from so many directions, I thought his list should include a specific prayer for marriages and families.

Incidentally, a prayer for marriages includes the vocation of those that opt to marry the church and serve it in a variety ways.
