National Catholic Sisters Week is March 8 -14
Loving God,by your grace, Catholic Sisters throughout the world
continue to respond to your Baptismal invitation to live lives dedicated
to prayer and loving service.
Enkindle in their hearts a renewed desire to be zealous servants of the Gospel
and continuing signs of your presence in our world.Preserve and strengthen in them
the passion and the vision to welcome and to serve all your people without hesitation or pause.
As they strive to live the mission of their respective congregations, empower them
to do so with courageous simplicity, consecrated celibacy, and committed obedience
to your will.
We ask this in union with Jesus the Christ, who showed these dedicated women
the way to living in union with you.
