The Sisters of St. Agnes have always practiced the directive in their Constitutions which states, "we remember in our prayers the needs of the universal church and all peoples, living and dead."
The daily ministry of our retired sisters includes offering prayer and suffering for the intentions of others and they invite viewers to submit their petitions.
While we stay at home and socially isolate ourselves, the Sisters of St. Agnes are promoting a practice of praying in unity at 6:00 PM each evening regardless of time zone. In this time-sensitive prayer we can feel the unity of our joined intentional prayer during the coming months.
Those who wish to join in prayer may choose to use the suggested prayer on our "Pray With Us" page and also pass it on to others. Our aim is a global effect. If you have a particular prayer that you want to share, please send it (and your source) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer for March 24
Pope Francis’ Prayer
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
