Prayer of St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier
may every beat of my heart
be a prayer to obtain your grace
and care for those most lost in our world.
May every breath I take
be a prayer for your mercy
for those who are most in need.
May all those with whom I make eye contact
see themselves as you see them.
May all those I touch experience themselves
as valuable because of your tender
and forgiving presence.
And may I always be open
to receiving your love,
and being an instrument of your love
in the world.
Loving God, you who sow the seed
in the hearts of your people.
The fields arae shining for harvest.
Inspire many women and men
to listen to your call, and to
respond with generous hearts
to your invitation to
religious life, priesthood and church ministry.
Enkindle in them the fire of love
that they may follow Jesus Christ
to bring Good News to the poor,
justice and peace to the world,
and make known your love to all people.
~Sr. Yen Loc Tran, Contemplative GSS
