In solidarity with all Sisters and people across India, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have begun praying a novena for India. United at Nazareth and across the Congregation this nine-day devotional prayer reminds Sisters they are one and together lifts up their hearts to God during this difficult time.
Gracious God of Compassion, we hold up to you our Sisters in India and their families, friends, and companions in ministry. We hold up to you the people of India, the workers, the farmers, the homeless, the children and the elderly, the most vulnerable and the fearful. We pray that during these days of unknown realities, these days of fears, these days of illness and death, we pray that your healing, comforting presence may embrace them and console them.
