March 8, 2016: A special prayer to celebrate women religious

March 8, 2016 by


Loving God, by your grace, Catholic Sisters throughout the world continue to respond to your Baptismal invitation to live lives dedicated to prayer and loving service.

Enkindle in their hearts a renewed desire to be zealous servants of the Gospel and continuing signs of your presence in our world. Preserve and strengthen in them the passion and the vision to welcome and to serve all your people without hesitation or pause.

As they strive to live the mission of their respective congregations, empower them to do so with courageous simplicity, consecrated celibacy, and committed obedience to your will.

We ask this in union with Jesus the Christ, who showed these dedicated women the way to living in union with you. Amen.

~ Mary Rose Romeo, SSJ
