Our Lady of Maryknoll, by Fr. William Hart McNichols 

Our Lady of Maryknoll,
we ask you to help us understand
that wherever there is suffering,
there, too, is your Son’s loving hand.

He is there in the touch of a missioner,
in the smile of a new friend.
He is there in the prayer of a stranger,
in our faith that knows no end.

Dear Mary, walk beside us
and help us realize that we can ease another’s pain.
We can put hope in a child’s eyes.


From a prayer card of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers.
