We pray to you Our Lord for all missionary Sisters and Nuns as they work to build communities of faith in many lands, especially in the African nations, that they may share the courage of the Ugandan martyrs–St. Charles Lwanga and companions. Give strength and courage to our Sisters and Nuns to preach the Gospel in steadfast fidelity to the commitment they had made in their vows. Protect them from harm and preserve their souls. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
