MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: Victims of Devastating Events

Let us remember in our prayers the victims and survivors of devastating events this past week: those killed and injured in the destructive earthquake in central Italy; in the floods in Louisiana, United States and in eastern and central India; in the wildfires in western states in the United States and in the Moscow printing plant warehouse fire.

The people of Holmes County, a rural area of Mississipi, United States have also experienced immense loss.

We give thanks for the lives of Sisters Paula Merrill SCN and Margaret Hold OSF who were murdered in their home in Durant, a city in Holmes County. For many years they had cared for and healed the poor in a local clinic.

Their ministry was the subject of a short video by the Sisters of Nazareth last year. It can be watched here (03:55).
