Creator of the Universe, in your grace you promise us that those who die still live in Your presence. Their spirits have simply been transformed but have not ended. I pray in gratitude and hope for my family, relatives and friends that have gone before me, and for all the dead known to You alone.
Thank you for all the wonderful things
You have made:
The whole world, all the people
My home, my school, my friends, my pets.
Embrace these students and teachers with your love.
May we see and touch every patient as if it were you.
Pour into us unimaginable love and ready us
to nurture the children You entrust to our care.
Heal those who are sick. Restore them to full health.
“Oh my! What an incredible vocation to which mothers are called!”
“Give my love and greetings to all the sisters, and say that I wish them every good thing which they themselves desire...”
“...I have paid more than sixty thousand francs (on the motherhouse), besides supplying the wants of the one hundred and thirty persons who compose our family. How, are we not daughters of Providence?”
“When a fault is committed in your house, examine seriously before God whether you yourself are not the cause.”
“Be joyful, amiable toward each other. Have nothing on your conscience to trouble you.”
“When they are ill, take good care of them.”
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
