Thank you for all the wonderful things
You have made:
The whole world, all the people
My home, my school, my friends, my pets.
Protect us from plummeting into the social darkness of racism, poverty and despair that a pandemic can cause.
Aid our global community as it seeks to share resources, human skills and the knowledge needed to eradicate the virus.
Heal those who are sick. Restore them to full health.
Her voice echoes from of old, beckoning me to be still.
“Communion is nurtured by connection and from the recognition that everything, in its original form, is related. We share a oneness with all. The bond uniting us as individuals and groups is already there within us. We just need to become aware.”
“...purify your hearts more and more in communion with God, and acquire new strength and fervor for the time to come.”
“The weather was magnificent. It seemed that heaven united with earth to add beauty to the feast. Never had I seen our solitude so charming.”
“A Sister of Providence cannot go to heaven alone.”
“...unite our actions, however little they may be, with those of [Jesus]; unite our prayers with his prayers, our work with his work, our meals, our repose with his.”
“Everything in us seemed to change except charity, which united us to God.”
“I fully enter into your difficulties, this is the same as telling you that I suffer with you. Need I tell you that I pray for you?”
“It was all over for us, if the Lord had not come to our aid.”
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
