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.

For peace in our world.


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)
