WORD OF GOD:  This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  (Jn 15: 12-13)

OUR CONSTITUTION: As our intimate relationship with him deepens, he frees us to love more radically. Becoming more like Christ, we witness to his universal love for the church and his liberating covenant with humanity.  (YAS, C 13)

LET US PRAY: Lord Jesus Christ! Blessed Sister Maria Antonina was convinced that enduring love has the power to heal. However, today continued hostility and violence are destroying families, cultures, and societies; the world is still torn and divided by injustice and racial, ethnic, and national conflicts. We ask you to grant us the courage to be witnesses of unity in a divided world and to make an effort towards reconciliation wherever we are.

Blessed Sister Maria Antonina,
overcoming evil with true love,
