November 11


On this anniversary of Catherine McAuley’s death we remember her and all our sisters who have given their lives in service to others, and so we pray:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

We pray for each of us, that we may be a steady influence for good on this earth:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

We pray for hearts free from anxiety and fear and full of self-surrender:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

We pray for trust in God’s providence during times of doubt and difficulty:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

We pray for all who are nearing the time of their own death, that the hope of life eternal will comfort them:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

We pray for Sisters of Mercy throughout the world and for their co-workers, that Catherine’s life and death may continue to call us to embrace the spirit of hospitality and service:

- We are yours, O God, for time and eternity.

From the Morning and Evening Prayer of the Sisters of Mercy
