PRAYERS FOR SISTERS OF MERCY & ALPHA COMMUNITY
returned from Sister Bernadette’s funeral, sensing the immense void
among the Sisters, I thought of starting a Prayer Chain for the
community of Mercy Sisters. This recent matter with the Alpha Boys
school has put more urgency to my thought. I’ve made the suggestion to
the Board of the Florida Chapter and President Donna Fong and the
Directors have agreed to this Prayer Chain, which I’ve termed “PAUSE FOR
PRAYER”. The former Chairman, Esperanza Andrade, suggested that we also
ask the other Chapters to join us, hence this email.
us in Prayer for the Sisters of Mercy and the Needs of the Alpha
Community. Let us send this message to all our alumnae and let’s put it
into practice, not just for the Lenten Season but ongoing. Every day
between 6 p.m and 7 p.m., wherever we may be, let us PAUSE FOR PRAYER,
in spirit, by praying: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and the Glory be to the
Father. Our Lord said: “Where 2 or 3 are gathered in My Name, there I’ll
be” – we may not be gathered physically, but we will be in collective
spirit, praying for God’s tender Mercy, His Guidance and His Love for
the Sisters of Mercy and our Alpha community.
I and a
few of the Directors started our PAUSE FOR PRAYER last week.
welcome your comments.
Peace and Love,
