Late in the evening on October 17 the phone rang at the Sisters’ community at Dispensario “San Jose” in Guatemala City. On the other end of the line was a Scalabrini Sister from the local Migrants Services Center. A caravan of 1,500 migrants from Honduras had arrived at their doors, cold, desperate, and in need of medical care. Read More »

Recientemente celebramos el cumpleaños número 168 de Madre Cabrini. Esta es una oportunidad anual para que los miembros de la comunidad de Cabrini reflexionen sobre la vida de nuestra fundadora y se maravillen con el gran trabajo de Dios en misiones que continúan hoy. Este año, en Cabrini Mission Foundation, pensamos en las palabras de la Madre Cabrini: “Toda nuestra vida debe ser un acto de acción de gracias, porque recibimos constantemente beneficios infinitos de Dios”.
We recently celebrated Mother Cabrini’s 168th birthday. This is a yearly opportunity for members of the Cabrini community to reflect upon the life of our foundress and marvel in God’s great work in missions which continue today. This year we at Cabrini Mission Foundation thought about Mother Cabrini’s words, “All our life must be an act of thanksgiving, because we are constantly receiving infinite benefits from God.”
Lord God of peace, hear our prayer!
We have tried so many times and over so many years to resolve our conflicts by our own powers and by the force of our arms. How many moments of hostility and darkness have we experienced; how much blood has been shed; how many lives have been shattered; how many hopes have been buried… But our efforts have been in vain.
Now, Lord, come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way of peace. Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say: “Never again war!”; “With war everything is lost”. Instill in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace.
Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters. Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister. Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn our weapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust, and our quarreling into forgiveness.
Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words “division”, “hatred” and “war” be banished from the heart of every man and woman. Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands. Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be “brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!
