Pro Orantibus Day

Pope Benedict XVI has set Nov. 21, the Feast of the Presentation of Mary, as a day to pray for cloistered religious. It is called Pro Orantibus Day (“For those who pray”). 

To all who serve in such a dedicated way,
you have our deepest gratitude and appreciation.

Thanks be to God.

Mary, teach us to understand the Brotherhood of Man
in the holiest of ways.
Teach us silence, when we want to gossip and slander.
Teach us to know true happiness and joy in life
through the presence of Christ
in our everyday life.

Give also peace of mind to the sick and suffering,
fill them with your loving trust and hope...
Be their true Star of the Sea -
a lighted ship on the turbulent waves,
set sail to our Father's house.

Most holy Mary, humble servant of the Lord,
pray for us.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
