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
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.
Mary Rose Romeo, SSJ
