Trusting in the Eternal Father
Eternal Father, God of all eternity,
you watch over each and every one of us.
You invite us to trust in you
And to live in surrender to your Providence.
Today, on the anniversary
of Saint Marguerite d’Youville’s
return to you, we unite with her
as we pray.
We thank you
for this faithful witness
whose faith and compassion
marked our history
and who continues to speak
to the people of our times.
Stimulate our hope,help us to walk
the road with you and to nurture Life
through our peaceful, tender and loving gestures
towards the poor and the lowly
just as she did.
(Claudette Jacques, s.c.s.h.)
