St. Patrick, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

.

St. Patrick was a great missionary, and is a beloved patron saint. As we near his feast day, let us ask him to pray with us as intercessor for our missionary sisters and nuns.

Lord Jesus, watch over your missionary women—those brave sisters and nuns dispersed throughout our world—who leave everything to give testimony to your word and your love.

In difficult moments, sustain their energies, comfort their hearts, and encourage their work with spiritual achievements. Let the image of you crucified, which accompanies them throughout life, speak to them of heroism, generosity, obedience, love, and peace.

Amen
