Prayers of the Faithful Composed by Junior Ladies of Charity

Spirituality was an important element in the mini-assembly of Juniors Ladies of Charity, Oct. 24-25 in the Albany, N.Y. area. During the prayer service on Saturday, Emily Cassel of the group from the Diocese of Buffalo read these thoughtful and moving prayers of the faithful which the girls had composed during the road trip, reflecting some of their concerns and perceptions:

For the sick, the hungry and the poor, we pray to the Lord…
For all the young people trying to make their way through the new school year…
For the young ladies of JLOC, that they continue their mission to help and serve their communities…
For all of the children living in war-torn countries and that they can one day find peace…
For all of the Ladies of Charity, without whom we would not be together today…
That we may all have a safe journey home at the close of this experience….
