SAYING Thank You and Goodbye to Sr Mercy – with the icon of ‘Our Lady of Silence’
One of our sisters, Sr Mercy, who was serving in QA Hospital is left us last Sunday, so we thanked her for all her ministry among us and in the Hospital offering the Holy Mass for her intention last’s Sunday’s Mass. (10.15am, Sunday 3rd December.)
Heavenly Father, in your wisdom you have called certain women and men to a life of special consecration
so that in prayerful observance of a lifestyle of poverty, chaste celibacy and obedience,
they might be witnesses to us that as St. Paul says,
“our true citizenship is in heaven.” Give them, Lord, the grace of joy and perseverance in their holy vocation.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
