Each day, the RSHM who are active in ministry and those who are retired continue to seek to know and love God and make God known and loved. We ask you for your prayers for strength, guidance, and wisdom that we live out the mission to which God has called each of us.  

Loving and Gracious God,

Today I pray for the RSHM and all of the Catholic sisters you have given to the church. Sisters fulfill a unique role – devoting their lives to building the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

We ask you to bless all women religious. Guide them, strengthen them, sustain them. Shower them with your grace.

We ask that you may open our eyes to the beauty of their work, so that we too may draw close to you in prayer and reach out, in turn, to help neighbors in need.

Give us the courage to answer the unique call you have for each of our lives. It is the path to great joy. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit, both now and forever. Amen.
