Prayers for the Rome Group
Christ never allowed us to walk alone. He always sent us out two by two, but he also gave us people to pray for us. On This trip we have the distinct privilege to share our experiences in prayer with our family going to Rome. We decided to split up our groups and pray for each other. The group that is going on a pilgrimage to Rome and our group have already been able to share mass together and come in fellowship just to spend time together. The idea behind the prayer partners is that it allows us to walk with our brothers and sisters through the entire trip. We will have the opportunity to lift someone up in prayer and in return be lifted up. I think the most powerful part of this is the fact that it was we, the students, who wanted to have prayer partners. We really are part of a family and I am so excited for that family to grow with our new friends that we will meet in Guatemala and in Rome. Even though we are thousands of miles apart we can be connected through Christ and the Eucharist.
