Trusting in God’s Providence and with hearts full of creative hope, we stand with the human family in this time of stress and uncertainty. As the religious family of Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we hold in prayer those infected with the coronavirus and especially the fatal victims and their families. We prayerfully support the medical professionals who are giving their skilled care and compassion. We pray for the guidance of those in positions of governance who are working to achieve a return to health and well-being for the people they have been called to serve. Throughout these trying times, we stir ourselves to act with creative hope and compassion on behalf of those most in need. We pray that the God of boundless love is acting on our behalf and that this pandemic will soon recede from our common home so that we may live together in peace, safety, good health and well-being.
