“Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Gospel to all creation” (Mk 16:15)
Mary Ward, this apostolic and prophetic woman, who believed that ‘women in time to come will do great things,’ invites us to commit ourselves in the mission of the church with great disponibility and daring.
“Only such as belong wholly to God, as live this in truth, are strong and fitting for such good works as are in this world to be done.” (M. Ward, VP 33; Oct. 1619)
Increase in us, O Lord, the desire to serve you more and more, in your Church present in the world. May we be able to continue your own mission as women with the same fidelity that animated and moved our foundress Mary Ward. Lord, lead and guide us in the spirit of discernment as we prepare ourselves for GC2011. Amen
