O Lord, we bring before You
the distress and dangers of peoples and nations,
the pleas of the imprisoned and the captive,
the sorrows of the grief-stricken,
the needs of the refugee,
the impotence of the weak,
the weariness of the despondent,
and the diminishments of the aging.
O Lord, stay close to all of them.

Amen.

Good morning! These are two words that made a big difference in my missionary journey in Taiwan. On the first day of my Mandarin class, I went out early that morning to my teacher's house. I walked slowly while praying the rosary. There were a lot of people I met on the streets. I smiled and bowed my head to greet them even if I didn't know how to say good morning in the local language.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy.
hail our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To you we cry, poor banished children of Eve!
To you we send up our sighs;

Turn, most gracious Advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this, our exile,
show us the blessed fruit of Your womb, Jesus!
