Spirit of the Living God, look with love and compassion on us, your creation. Open our hearts and minds to see how we can serve you more. The early Christians were recognized immediately by their deep and abiding love for one another. O Holy Spirit, assist us to live so that people will look upon us with that same recognition. We ask for a spirit of abandonment to Divine Providence today and every day. We ask the intercession of Mary, Our Mother, and all of our patron Saints to intercede for us. We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Praised be Jesus and Mary! I am pleased to announce that Eva Nakaggwa of Uganda and Cecilia Ndukwu of Nigeria were received as postulants on the Feast of the Presentation on
Saturday, February 2, 2013.
The pictures here and on our Facebook page [www.facebook.com/Oblate.Sisters.of.Providence] tell the story of this joyous occasion. Please pray for their holy perseverance as they begin their formation in becoming spiritual daughters of Mother Lange. What a wonderful way to commemorate the 131st anniversary of her death the very next day, on February 3! We also ask for prayers for the other women of Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana who are in various stages of the discernment and
immigration processes. For them, and anyone else trying to discover God’s will
for their lives, we have provided an online discernment retreat. Follow the link
for the Scripture readings and meditative questions.
To underscore the diversity of our Congregation, we have provided the vocation story of another daughter of Mother Lange, Sister Mercia Delgado, OSP, from Havana, Cuba. Sister was a teacher for many years and is the manager of the Altar Bread Department at the Motherhouse. We are grateful for her and the many Sisters upon whose shoulders we stand. May God continue to grant all of us holy perseverance and more vocations to serve God’s people. (click the photo to read Sister Mercia's story)
