Father William Howard Bishop founded the Glenmary Sisters in 1941. He wrote a prayer for the Home Missions. The Sisters would appreciate it very much if you would say this prayer with them as often as you can.
If you would like to order some of the cards to give out to others, please email Richard in the Development Office with the pertinent information. We will try to accommodate your request. A nominal fee will be charged for shipping large orders.
PRAYER FOR THE HOME MISSIONS
LORD JESUS CHRIST, Who for the salvation of all people founded Your Church in the Blood of Sacrifice, look with mercy on this land of ours where Your truth is unknown to many for whom You endured Your Passion and Death. We commend to Your Sacred Heart the work of carrying Your Gospel to the mission regions of America. Raise up holy and zealous apostles to bring Your words of salvation to the souls now thirsting for the truth. Have mercy on them, Lord, and send shepherds to lead them into Your one true fold. Amen
- Our Lady of the Fields, pray for them.
- St. Joseph, friend of forgotten souls, pray for them.
- Holy Apostles and Martyrs, pray for them.
- That through our labors we may hope to win for them the Divine gift of faith.
