As you know, one of the mainstays of our life here at the Friary is prayer–particularly prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Prayer is an essential part of the life of any religious community. We pray, of course, not only for ourselves or those near to us, but also for the many people we serve in our ministries.
We are humbled by the privilege of being able to lift up the intentions of others to God. If you are reading this, we are already praying for you in a general way. However, we also invite you to submit specific intentions that we will bring in front of the Blessed Sacrament at the EWTN Chapel here.
Of course, the call to pray for others is not exclusive to friars, but extends to all Christians. It is through praying for one another that we see that the Body of Christ–of which we are all a part–is a very real, living, communion of persons. Please join with us in prayer, by praying for your loved ones, your neighbors, your community and especially those who may have no one to pray for them.
The Lord created us to give of ourselves to one another, both in our vocations and through time spent in prayer.
