HOLDING THE WORLD IN MY HEART AT EASTER…


A few words from Sr Clare Hand fcJ, via our sister-blog site on her prayer during Holy Week

FCJ Sisters' Blog

I tried so hard during the Holy Week services to hold in prayer all those I love and everything I care about.  I prayed for my family and friends, for the FCJs and CiM, for the needs of the world and indeed for the whole of creation.  I moved from the particular – for example from praying for each member of my family – to praying for all those parts of the world where there is particular suffering – to holding the whole of the created order in my heart and prayer.  My prayer moved back and forth constantly in my simple attempt to align my heart with God’s and to open a way for the grace of Easter to transform the world.  I continue to pray for everyone and everything…May the Risen Christ bring healing, peace and the fullness of life wherever it is needed…
