God Our Father,
we thank you that have called us to follow your Son Jesus Christ,
and to serve your people according to Mary's way.
As the Society of Mary prepares for the General Chapter
and takes a new turn on its pilgrim way,
pour out upon them the light of your Spirit.
May he teach your ways and show your paths
so that the Society of Mary may walk in your truth
and witness to your merciful love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
confident in the support of Mary,
our first and perpetual superior. Amen.
Fr Jean Claude Colin, please pray for the Society of Mary
and pray for us.
