Prayer of Reunion

The Prayer of Reunion has been in use by the Sisters of Providence since before the sisters left France in 1840 to found the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind., congregation. Small changes have been made over time, including a change made by the 2011 General Chapter to include all who share the charism of Providence as part of the prayer.

We unite with all our sisters
and all who share the charism of Providence,
wherever they may be,
to praise you, our living God,
present to us in your Word, Jesus Christ,
holy, wise, humble, amiable and merciful.

We give, we consecrate and immolate ourselves
to you and your loving service.

Deign, O God, to send your Spirit
to receive, possess, purify, enlighten and sanctify our hearts.

O Divine Jesus, keep us yours always.  Amen
