Prayer Calendar February 19

Intention for today

That we may accept Mary as the model of what salvation is for each of us: freed from sin in Her Immacu­late Conception, sharing the sufferings of Her Son as Mother of Sorrows, and raised to a share in the risen life of Jesus in Her Assumption. (Art. 8)

Prayer of intercesion: We pray for

For our deceased brothers and benefactors, for all the faithful departed, and for him who will die first among us.

For a deeper understanding of the paschal mystery.

For our benefactors: in thanksgiving for their continued generosity to the Congregation.
