I’m still trying to find my place as a pray-er among the residents at the women’s care facility. As an introvert and hermit, and with what little social skills I possess, the challenge is large. I had been given a list of names of the women who are Catholic and ambled to each room to [Read More...]

Let us pray for our future Sisters and Nuns that they, like the Blessed Virgin Mary, will trust in their own annunciation of being called to a religious profession.

Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

This prayer is for those who feel the burden of our times, which includes our Sisters and Nuns. It was shared by Fr. Mike, the priest at Saints Cornelius & Cyprian Church, a small parish in farm country where I usually attend daily Mass. O God, we pray this day: for all who have a song they cannot [Read More...]

Look kindly Lord, on your priests, religious, and laymen who left all to witness to your word and your love. Be to each one of them a “…powerful protector and their strong support, their shade from the midday sun, their shelter from the desert wind, a guard against stumbling, an assurance against a fall…” (Ecc [Read More...]
