We turn to you, Mother of the Church. Through your \”fiat\” you have opened the door which makes Christ present to the world, in history and in individual lives. In humble silence and in total availability you welcomed the call of the Most High. May there be many men and women who come to know, in our day, the invitation of your Son, \”Follow Me!\” May they find the courage to leave family, work and earthly hopes, and follow Christ along the road that He trod. Stretch out your motherly hand over missionaries everywhere in the world, over the men and women religious who assist the aged, the sick, the disabled, the orphaned; over those engaged in teaching; over those who live lives of faith and love within the cloister, pleading for the salvation of the world. Amen. (1988)
Think about it…
If you are a single woman, maybe God is calling you to be a cloistered Dominican nun! You may ask, \”Me?\” But consider the number of seemingly unlikely people down through the centuries who have heard the call of Christ and followed that call joyfully. We know many of them are saints. You could be one of them! Please check out our website for more information–just click HERE.
