WUCWO DAY 2017

13 May 2017

Prepared by Latin America and the Caribbean Region

 

On WUCWO Day, let’s remember this year’s intentions: Suffering women in the world.

 

I. In this year, we have been especially invited, while sharing the table of the Lord, to contemplate the anguish of our suffering sisters.

Today we pray for “all who are being abused, violated, oppressed, and in situations that deprive them of their dignity.

We pray for mothers yearning for adequate, clean drinking water and proper sanitation, sufficient food and health care for their families.

We pray for those struggling for survival, those broken and alienated, refugees and visible minorities experiencing repeated discrimination, bearing the brunt of indifference and oppression.

We pray for the day when women who are equal in ability have equal rights and can live in peace, joy and harmony” (cf. 2017 Intentions).

WUCWO DAY 2016

May 13, 2016  Jubilee of Mercy

Prepared by Europe

Narrator Pope Francis has given us a gift: he has brought us together to celebrate a very special year, a year dedicated to mercy. This year, we are going to focus on mercy. It will be nice to reflect on how we are living and practicing it in our own communities. The title of the Jubilee reminds us to be: “Merciful as the Father”. We shall pray on this WUCWO day with this theme in mind to help us live in the way he asks us.

The second paragraph of the Bull of Indiction tell us:

WUCWO DAY 2015

May 13, 2015
Prepared by North America Region

FAITH is “NOW”! HOPE looks to the future! LOVE binds it all together! JOY AND PEACE to all!
FAITH is the confidence that what we hope for will happen. Pope Benedict XVI stated “faith is for the sake of hope”.
HOPE in a Christian sense is always hope for others as well. We can always continue to hope, despite all failures, held firm by the great power of love.
LOVE blesses the one who receives it and it blesses you, the giver. Love is the key that opens the gate to peace and joy.
PEACE ever new is a JOY which is shared! The Joy of the Gospel is our gift shared by Pope Francis!
Dear sisters, united in God’s great love for us all, we offer our prayers this WUCWO International Day. We come to You, Lord, as members of your great family, as a gathered community in our corner of your earth. In faith and with love, we bring you our hopes and fears, our joys and sorrows. We take time to give thanks for the blessings we share, for loving friends and supportive family.
“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mk. 16:16). Recite the Apostles Creed.
“Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer” (Romans 13:13).
“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you should also love one another. This is how you will know that you are my disciples, is how you have loved one another” (John 13:34-35).
