Lay Dominican Democracy - Catheryn Orive OP






PLEASE PRAY FOR M.

M. is a woman who lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
P. is a personal friend of our community and was a missionary in the DRC for awhile. She is our translator and communicates with M.
P. is a personal friend of M. and is a personal friend of each one of our members.

M. runs a small clinic to help children and women.
"Blessed Mary Mother of Dominic Community of Cedaredge" supports her in as many ways as we can.
Although our community sends her some money from time to time it is very dangerous for her to make the journey to the town where she can bank and receive funds and supplies. Because of the chaos in the DRC she does not want to draw attention to herself and her clinic. So communication is limited.
When she can, she sends e-mails to P. and P. sends the translation from French into English to us.

Do you believe now? (Jn 16:31)
So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? (Mt 26:40)
