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.
