Prayer Calendar January 19

Intention for today

That we may recognize our conversion as a dynamic, life-long process: we must constantly die to self (self-will, self-love, self-activity) in order to rise by the power of the Holy Spirit to a new life of love in Christ. (Art. 1)

Prayer of intercesion: We pray for

For our vocation directors and their associates, and for vocations to our Congregation.

For victims of war, the displaced, the poor and the hungry.

Words of the Founder

I put you behind me academies and boudoirs, drawing rooms and parliaments, and revelling in philanthropy...These lifeless temples of humanity are now too small for me! (London, 11/115/1830)
