9401 have prayed

That consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.

Offering prayer

Father, here I am.
I know you are always with me.
I place my heart in the Heart of your Son Jesus,
who gives himself to us in the Eucharist each day.
May your Holy Spirit strengthen me to live the Gospel in everything I do and say.
For my part I give you this day–all my prayers,
works, joys, and sufferings–all I am and possess.
With Mary, mother of the Church, I pray for the
mission of the Church, for all Apostles of Prayer,
and for the intentions of the Pope this month. Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Find more information about the mission of religious with poor populations and in places that are not always reported in the news.
  • Visit, this month, a religious missionary community, close to where you live, to understand their charism and mission and offer your service to them to the best of your ability.
  • Organize a time of prayer in your community for a increase in vocations of those religious who consecrate themselves to the service of others and for the people they serve.
