Prayer and Penny Week
One Week for the Missions PDF Print E-mail

This year, the Missionary Childhood Association celebrates National Prayer and Penny Week from March 6-13, 2016. This program serves as MCA’s Lenten prayer and sacrifice program for Grades k-8 as well as Grades 9-12. National Prayer and Penny Week Program continues to honor the legacy of Venerable Pauline Jaricot. As founder of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, a Pontifical Mission Society like the Missionary Childhood Association, this young French laywoman encouraged prayers and financial help – “prayers and pennies” for the Missions of her day (including our own country). Today, her vision calls us to action – to do for us in building the Church here in the United States. To learn more about Pauline Jaricot and her vision, click here.

Prayer for National Prayer and Penny Week  2016

God our Father,

Help us to be your witnesses and disciples and share the Good News of the Gospel with our lives.

Jesus, our Lord,

You teach us that all life is sacred. Strengthen us to witness every day to Your love with our words, actions and sacrifices.

Holy Spirit, Giver of Life,

as missionary disciples you invite us to share the Good News, cooperating with you and one another to walk with our brothers and sisters who live in poverty, loneliness, and despair.

In a special way we ask You to bless all the missionaries sharing Your love.

We send this prayer across the world in Jesus’ name. AMEN.

Oración Para La Semana Nacional de Oración y Obsequio 2016

Dios, Nuestro Padre,

ayúdanos a ser sus testigos y discípulos y compartir la Buena Noticia del Evangelio con nuestras vidas.

Jesús, Nuestro Señor,

Tú nos enseñas que toda vida es sagrada. Fortalécenos para ser testigos cada día de Tu amor con nuestras palabras, acciones y sacrificios.

Espíritu Santo, dador de vida,

como discípulos misioneros tú nos invitas a compartir la Buena Nueva, cooperando contigo y con otros a caminar con nuestros hermanos y hermanas que viven en la pobreza, la soledad y la desesperación.

De manera especial te pedimos que bendigas a todos los misioneros compartiendo Tu amor.

Enviamos esta oración a través del mundo en nombre de Jesús. AMÉN.
