Just received our Annual Report for the Year 2010 from the Ursuline Provincialate in New Rochelle, NY. It contains the gathering prayer used in October for our 475 Anniversary of the founding of the Ursulines.
O, God, we thank you for bringing us together to celebrate 475 years of Ursuline History.
O, God, all your creating praises you in its diversity and its oneness; may we embrace our call to be co-creators and gather all to you.
May our lives be filled with wonder and awe, recognizing you, our God, in all creation.
May your church, as your promised, move through good and bad times toward completion in Jesus.
Help us to grow in awareness of all we can be and do to contribute to the healing of the universe.
Help us to embrace new opportunities to reveal your love for the world.
