Prayer of the Institute
Father and Mother of infinite love
We praise you!
Help us to assume our commitment of fidelity to the mission of Christ in the Church of today as it leads the way in defense of the oppressed.
Make us sensitive to the needs of your people.
Mark us with the fidelity of Gailhac.
May our presence be a constant revelation of love and joy as was Mary’s Woman of faith and hope.
Make us grow, Lord, in true zeal, capable of transforming the world.
May our hearts discover you in the Scriptures in the breaking of bread and in the service of others.
Strengthened and united in love we want as individuals, and as an Institute, to be a testimony to the world that you are Father and that we are brothers and sisters in your Son, Jesus Christ.
Please join us in praying for the following intentions:
We pray for the people of all countries marked by war and discord, and suffering the consequences of such conflicts–starvation, disease, displacement, and the loss of innocent lives.
For peace in the Holy Land, that Israelis and Palestinians have the willingness and courage to write a new page of history.
For the people in Africa, for our sisters in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique.
For migrants and refugees, and for all those who are subject to human trafficking.
For those who are suffering natural catastrophes.
For those who are ill, particularly our sisters, their family members and friends, and our collaborators, and for those who are caring for them. We pray for those who are grieving the death of loved ones.
For your own intentions and for all those who have asked for our prayers, in person and through the prayer request form on our website.
