Prayer Offered for February 22, 2024

Reverend Dr. King said: “The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk their position, their prestige, and even their life for the welfare of others.”

(Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Gracious God of mercy and justice, as we face the challenges and opportunities of each day, help us to stand firm in our truth while respecting the dignity of other truths; give us the courage to forgo our own comfort and convenience for the benefit of those denied their basic human rights; and when we fail, may we know Your continued mercy and love. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.

Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
