“Our Lady, who received a unique grace of intimacy with God, is our model in prayer. Because she lived in deep interior silence, ever listening for His word, she surrendered herself to the transforming presence of her Son. And so, like her, we yield ourselves up to the divine action so that Christ whom we wish to bring to the world, may shine forth ever more clearly through us.” RJM Constitutions #38
St. Claudine Thevenet, RJM
God, Our Father, You granted St. Claudine Thevenet an intimate experience of your merciful goodness and you called her to dedicate her life to the education of the young, giving her the grace to draw from the heart of your son an ardent zeal to make Jesus and Mary known and loved.
Help us like her, to be witnesses to your love, given over to the action of the Spirit and open to the needs of our brothers and sisters, especially the most deprived. Grant us, through her intercession, and for the praise of your glory the grace for which we now pray. Amen.
Blessed Dina Bélanger, RJM
Father of everlasting goodness, You put into the heart of Blessed Dina Belanger the burning desire to offer you on behalf of all mankind, the infinite riches of the Heart of Jesus present in the Eucharist, and, to live, like Mary, closely united to Him whom she loved with an undivided heart.
May we, like her, find our joy in faithfully doing your Will, and since you revealed to her your great desire to pour out upon the world the abundance of your graces, hear the prayer which we make for your greater glory, and which we entrust to her intercession. Amen.
