Christ of the Ascension, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

.

O Christ of the Ascension, we pray that You will strengthen and refresh those holy women who have answered Your call to be set apart with You. They are for the world a sign and symbol of the faith You ask of each of us; they sustain us through their prayers and the work of their hands. We ask that You sustain them in kind, Lord. Let Your grace fill them with love, that they may delight in serving You today, and rejoice. May You bring laughter, light, and peace to each of them, and to their communities. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

Beloved Mother Mary, Mother of Sisters and Nuns, take to your heart your daughters who are close to you because of their calling by your son, and because of the grace which they have received to carry on his work  in a world which needs them so much. In this holy season of Easter be their comfort, be their joy, and be their strength. Loving Mother help them to live and defend the ideals that your son suffered and died for so that we may have life eternal.  Amen.

Suffering Pandemic, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

.

Lord Jesus we pray that you strengthen our Sisters and Nuns to bring forth your hope and love in a world suffering with a pandemic. Where disease has inflicted debilitation, let our Sisters and Nuns work and pray for healing and peace. Where famine and loss has brought suffering, let our holy women feed the poor. Where in addition to the pestilence upon our world, earthquakes and floods have caused hopelessness, let our consecrated women provide relief. Where this epidemic has spread, let our Sisters and Nuns care for life. We ask in Jesus’ name that God guard them from this disease and all evil for the salvation of those to whom they attend.  Amen.
