March 11, 2016: A special prayer to celebrate women religious

March 11, 2016 by


Father, we’re your people, the work of your hands. So precious are we in your sight that you sent your Son, Jesus.

Jesus calls us to heal the broken-hearted, to dry the tears of those who mourn, to give hope to those who despair,
and to rejoice in your steadfast love.

We, the baptized, realize our call to serve. Help us to know how. Call forth from among us sisters, brothers, priests, and lay ministers.

With our hearts you continue to love your people.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
