Prayer in Time of Need.

 Lord, in 1879 the Apparition in Knock gave comfort and hope to your people in a time of distress and worry. In the presence of Our Lady, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist and the Lamb of God you showed us that we are neither alone nor abandoned in times of great need, personally and as a people.

We ask you Lord, to walk with us again as we face the Coronavirus. Help our medical personnel to bring the virus to a swift end and bless them in their work. We ask healing and recovery to be given to all who are suffering from the virus and their families.

May all of us, Lord, be strengthened by the spiritual support of the Christian community at this time through prayer, fasting and concern for one another. May we never abandon hope in the face of adversity and trust in your love for us. Amen

Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.
St Joseph, pray for us.
St John the Evangelist, pray for us.

Lettre à Sr Kathleen au Ciel !

Chère Sœur Kathleen !
Depuis quelques jours, je vous ai écrit, plusieurs fois, à votre adresse à la Maison Mère des Filles de la Charité à Paris, en France.
Aujourd'hui, je vous écris, à votre nouvelle adresse au Ciel.
Chère Sr Kathleen, je voudrais vous exprimer ma plus profonde gratitude pour toutes les quatre années que j'ai eu le privilège de vous connaître, de découvrir votre cœur maternel, un cœur qui bat sans cesse pour chaque Fille de la Charité, pour notre Petite Compagnie, pour la Famille Vincentienne et pour les Pauvres !
Vous avez été et vous êtes pour moi l'exemple d'une personne qui a vécu au maximum les vertus de simplicité, humilité et charité.
J'ai toujours apprécié votre soutien, votre collaboration profonde, votre proximité. J’aime la manière dont vous terminiez toujours vos lettres: ‘’L'union dans la prière!’’
C'est en fait pour moi la première lettre que je vous adresse à votre nouvelle adresse au Ciel.
Comme d’habitude, je continuerai de vous écrire. Nous continuerons notre correspondance régulière. La seule chose qui change, c'est l'adresse.
Dans cette première lettre à votre nouvelle adresse, je voudrais vous assurer que je continuerai à me souvenir de vous pendant l'Eucharistie, le Rosaire, l'Adoration du Saint Sacrement.
Avec vous au Ciel, nous restons en union de prières pour chaque Fille de la Charité, notre Petite Compagnie, la Famille vincentienne, les Pauvres!
Chère Sœur Kathleen, j’ai une forte conviction que vous êtes unie à l’armée des Saints de la Famille vincentienne et que dès aujourd’hui vous avez commencé à intercéder pour les Pauvres, les Filles de la Charité, la Congrégation de la Mission et le reste de la Famille vincentienne.
Unis dans la prière !
Tomaž Mavrič, cm
