"Courageously committed to God's Reign of Peace and Justice"
(Cf. Rom.14:17 - 19)

 

The OLA General Chapter is taking place in Rome from 23rd June to 22nd July.  Sisters attending represent 13 nationalities working in 18 different countries.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice,
they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
(Mt 5 : 3,6-7,9-10)

We invite you to join us in our prayer for the Chapter:

Grant us Lord
the courage to live this Word
so that with joyful hearts
and open to the breath of the Spirit,
we can build, with You,
the Kingdom of Peace and Justice

AMEN
