Peace and Every Good

“We are a congregation of active women religious who have chosen to live the Gospel simply and plainly in the footsteps of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi. Our Sisters invite you to explore these pages and learn more about us, how we live, what we believe, and how we dedicate our lives to God through serving God’s Church and God’s people.”

-Sister Joanne Brazinski, OSF

40 Days of Prayer: Day 15

On our 15th day of prayerful reflection, which is also World Water Day, please join us in prayer for those without access to clean water. We pray for efforts throughout the world to bring life-giving water to those without, as well as preserve and protect sources of clean water. We also pray for the wisdom and courage to care for and preserve this vital gift of life for future generations.

 

40 Days of Prayer and Reflection
Lent is a welcome time for many Christians when we open our hearts to Christ and prepare ourselves to go forward in faith through prayer, reflection and living more simply. Prayer is also a vital part of our Sisters’ spiritual lives, ministry, and mission. Franciscan Prayer is contemplative – opening one’s heart and mind to the presence of God directly and in all creation. As part of our Lenten journey, prayer strengthens our faith and moves us to manifest God’s extravagant love in our own lives. This Lenten season, we invite you to join us in 40 Days of Prayer.We pray that your Lenten journey blesses you with spiritual clarity and a deeper understanding of the love of Christ. May you go forward from this prayerful experience as a witness to God’s extravagant love.
