Evenings of Prayer for the USA

Greetings!  I apologize for not posting more often. Last November a nasty virus began making its way through our community and a number of us are still dealing with the many and varied side effects that come with such a germ.  In community life we share all things in common – unfortunately, even colds!

Now – on to the purpose of this post!

During this election year we are going to host Evenings of Eucharistic Prayer for our Nation. We sure hope you can join us.

Each evening will consist of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, Intercessions, Scripture Readings, Sermon by a Father of Mercy, Renewal of Consecration of our Nation to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and close with Solemn Benediction

First evening is scheduled for Tuesday, February 7th 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Sermon by Fr. David Wilton, CPM

For those of you who live nearby please tell your friends and family to join us in prayer at the monastery. For those who live at a distance please feel free to join us in spirit. Our Nation is in a moral crisis and we need much prayer! May we return to the God-centered values of our Founding Fathers! May God bless our upcoming Presidential Election!

  1. You mean like slavery?

    yes, there are many forms of enslavement to sin. We must do much prayer and penance to break these strongholds!

  2. Greetings,
    I agree with you about our nation! We are in a crisis and I believe the only way this can be solved is through prayer and reliance on our Great God!

    Will you be posting the dates of your evenings of prayer so that those of us too far away will at least be able to pray at the same time?

    Thank you for your website, I enjoy reading about what your life and activities.

    May God’s richest blessings be yours!

  4. Dear Sister,

    You might want to buy bottles of Vitamin D3 to boost the immune systems of the sisters. Also, oil of oregano — one drop under the tongue once a day keeps the germs away.

    Yours in Christ,

  5. Sandy, Congratulations on being a Passionist Lay Associate! That is terrific news!

    Yes, I will definitely post each date of our evenings of prayer. They will usually occur on the first Tuesday of the month.
    United in the Passion of Christ,
    Sponsa Christi

  6. I love the poignant painting of George Washington praying at Valley Forge. It is a good choice to illustrate the need for prayers for your forthcoming elections in the USA.

    I like to visit your website. It feels a good place to be! I was educated by the Sisters of the Cross & Passion in England so your Order is familiar to me.

    May I just ask which Sister edits your blog? She maintains just the right balance of spirituality, everyday life, teaching and humour.

    Thank-you sisters!

  7. Greetings Anne! It is always good to hear from our neighbors in England!
    One particular Sister does the editing but the ideas come from a number of the Sisters and especially our Mother Superior. That’s why Sponsa
    Christi must remain anonymous because she can’t take the credit for what is really a community endeavor!

    May God reward you much for your affirmation of our blog, website and most of all – our hidden way of life! I must be off to my work and prayer and will remember you and all our blog readers there! Jesus bless you in England!
