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.
