- Praying with Sr Sara: prayer from the card
All powerful God, my loving Father,
you created me out of your everlasting
love and in your mercy you adopted me
as your child; Lord Jesus Christ,
you saved me by your precious blood
and you called me to be your disciple;
O Holy Spirit, you showered
an abundance of grace upon me.
Glory be to you forever!
O Most Holy Trinity, you accepted
the life-offering of Blessed Sara
Salkahazi, virgin and martyr, for her
sisters; through her intercession grant me
the grace of ................, and help me to
join her in crying out from the depth of my
heart: “O God of Love, enkindle love in
me! Come, my Christ, and make my heart
your own that you may love, and love,
and love within me!” Amen.
