Prayer in preparation for the Chapter
Holy Spirit, Spirit of communion and love,
to you we entrust this year of preparation for the Chapter.
As with Mary, give us the grace
of creative and missionary charity.
With Angélique and our foundresses,
grant us the audacity of new beginnings.
In times of darkness,
obtain for us perseverance and trust.
O Father of all tenderness,
teach us the mystery of total self-giving.
With all of those who have gone before us and live in your presence,
give us the grace to be faithful.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, on the future which is unfolding with You
abundantly pour out your love and joy
