Let us pray or have a moment of reflection in common

 

 

In order that there may be peace it is necessary
that each one
respect, protect, and acknowledge
the rights, the calling, the life,
the
possessions of the other,
or whatever else it may be.

Fr. Francis Jordan – Exhortations and Admonitions

ICDS Prayer requests

The members of the General Committee of the ICDS, ask all sisters and brothers of the Lay Salvatorians over the world to enclose as far as possible some of the following requests in their Monday evening prayer and carry it in a prayer cloud over the world. Let us pray for …

Generally

  • for Pope Francis, that the Holy Spirit will give him the power to fulfill his mission for the renewing of our church – and may God preserve him healthy.
  • for the successful work of the General Committee and the workgroup on the ICDS statutes and for the successful outcome from the Dicastery for laity, family, and life, granting us the approval of our statutes and recognition as a private association of the faithful, dotted with juridical personality.
  • for the members of the General Committee, that they find ways and a speech to encourage and motivate all Lay Salvatorians of the world, that each one carries his part of an effort of the development of the Salvatorian family and so the project gets on.
    Give them the grace to be apostles, and to find always answers to the complex challenges of our time.
  • for all Lay Salvatorians that they recognize and/or discover (again) and follow their special vocation on the pulpit of the world and to develop one’s own identity.
  • for all Lay Salvatorians that they discover and recognize their participation in a real worldwide community, as well as each of them, is motivated to build up this association together with his/her Lay Salvatorian brothers and sisters, make his/her contribution and guide it in this way to success.
  • for all Lay Salvatorians that they recognize the process to become a real community and follow this way with full of courage in spite of all difficulties. Because it will be a big treasure for the whole ICDS and in that way for each one.
  • for the work in the ICDS workgroups and that more members bring engaged their expectations and point of view for the fruitful development of the ICDS.
