The Handmaids have always been a group of resilient and determined women religious, who work with Christ to “bring healing to people’s hearts and peace to their relationships with God, with one another, and with creation.” Now, more than ever, is a time when the need for healing and reconciliation is inescapable.As we face what may be the greatest pandemic of all times, our global society is experiencing unprecedented and rapidly changing events. These events are altering lives and creating chaotic disruption to our norms.
Many of us are fearful, confused, apprehensive, doubtful. But guided by the Spirit, we pray:Creator God, we thank you for all of creation. We ask your forgiveness where we have failed to be just stewards. And we now ask for your guidance in restoring the face of the earth. May we learn to live in harmony, safety and just sharing of resources among all so that we achieve the kingdom of God.
Know that the Handmaids will keep you in thought and prayer as we continue to journey this challenging time together.
