A Prayer for CRUDEM

Offered by Sister Breda Boyle, C.S.J.P.

Gracious God, we place in your care the needs of all involved in the mission of CRUDEM. These individuals have shared their many gifts, resources, talents and time to further the work of your kingdom. The people of Haiti have benefited from their generosity. Bless them as only you can.

Continue the work you have begun at Hôpital Sacré Coeur. The hospital bears the name of your Son’s symbol of love, the Sacred Heart. Shower your love on the patients and their families. Bless the physicians, administrative team, nurses, staff, volunteers and all who serve the needs of your most vulnerable. Be their strength when they are weary and be a source of courage when they are disheartened.

Let us never forget that what we do for others, we are doing for you. May we remember the words from Lamentations: “Great is your faithfulness. Your mercies are renewed every day.” Amen.
