We pray in a special way for the two mothers originally from the United States who have both served as our Provincial Superiors in the past and will now serve the whole congregation:

May Our Lady accompany the new members of the general government in their daily work so that they may always be docile to the movements of the Holy Spirit as She was.

We invite you to continue praying for the work of our General Chapter in the days ahead (new photo galleries and daily news reports in English are available), as well as praying for our fathers and brothers during their General Chapter of the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) also being held this summer in Italy.  All for the Glory of God and the salvation of many souls!
