Good Shepherd Sisters IRELAND

A person is of more value than a world


Prayer

Prayer is of the very essence of our Good Shepherd vocation and unites all the aspects of our life in our response to God.

We find God not only in the depths of our being but also in the encounter with persons and in events.


Prayer of Saint Mary Euphrasia

God Of Compassion,

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 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 that love in the world.

Amen.
