Sisters Faithful Companions of Jesus around the world will be uniting their own prayer with Catholic sisters throughout the world who will also be praying for those directly impacted by the current health crisis. This call for a special day of prayer has been issued by the Union of International Superiors General.

Through the mystery of God, may this action of solidarity contribute in some way to an increase in healing, compassion, and love throughout the planet.

“How might our prayers and intentions be joined across congregations for the common good of the whole Earth community to help lift the spirits of a people, especially in the wake of closed churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship? What would happen if elder Catholic sisters (and brothers and priests) … were to unleash the power of their lifetime of prayer and contemplative practice to hold the safety and protection of all peoples across the world as a sacred intention?” (from “A Call to Spiritual Bonding,” by Elise D. García, OP)

The International Union of Superiors General (UISG) has called upon all women religious throughout the planet to spend Sunday, March 22 as a Day of Worldwide Solidarity and Prayer. “This is a special time for prayer and for witness through practical solidarity and awareness of our responsibility to care for one another….,” said UISG president Jolanta Kafka, RMI. “We therefore invite all the member congregations of UISG to make March 22 a day of worldwide solidarity and prayer especially for all those directly affected.
