WORD OF GOD: … looking at those seated in the circle he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” (Mk 3: 34-35) “For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mk 10: 45)
OUR CONSTITUTION: Love urges us to unite our will with God’s. (YAS, C 19)
LET US PRAY: Lord Jesus Christ! Blessed Sister Maria Antonina, strengthened by grace, followed your example, ready to accept the shortcomings, insults, persecution, and even death for the sake of the Kingdom of God. At the present time in our history, when violence, lies, and brutality so often frighten us, grant that we find the strength to overcome any difficulties in fulfilling God’s will.
Blessed Sister Maria Antonina,
obedient to God in all things,
PRAY FOR US!
