Prayer for Bagamoyo 2012

22 Nov

Dear Confreres,
Below is the Official Chapter Prayer for Bagamoyo 2012…in English, Portuguese and French. We are encouraged to fervently “say” this prayer, together with our friends and associates, from now until the beginning and end of our 20th General Chapter next year. God bless Spiritans!

=====
PRAYER for the 2012 GENERAL CHAPTER
Father, in times past you sent the Spirit of your Son
upon our founding fathers,
Claude Poullart des Places and Francis Libermann.

Thanks to them and to generations of Spiritans,
our Congregation has not ceased to dedicate itself
to the evangelization of the poor.

As we prepare ourselves to celebrate
our XXth general Chapter, at Bagamoyo,
we ask you to spread your Spirit anew on the whole Congregation.

May your Spirit gather us as one big family,
to better hear the calls of our time!

May we be given a new fervour
to deepen in your Church,
our missionary consecration and witness!

Following Mary’s example, by the power of the Spirit,
may we continue to give birth to your Son
for your glory and the life of this world that you created and liberated.
Amen!
===========
ORAÇÃO pelo Capítulo Geral
Pai Santo, iluminastes com o Vosso Espírito,
os nossos Fundadores
Cláudio Poullart des Places e Francisco Libermann.

Graças a eles e a tantas gerações de Espiritanos,
a nossa Congregação sempre se consagrou
a anunciar a Boa Nova aos pobres.

Ao prepararmos o XXº Capítulo Geral,
em Bagamoyo, pedimos que derrameis, com abundância,
o Vosso Espírito sobre toda a Congregação.

Ele nos una sempre mais numa única e grande família,
atenta aos sinais dos tempos.

Ele nos torne mais fervorosos,
para aprofundar e testemunhar, na Vossa Igreja,
a nossa consagração e o nosso espírito missionário.

Concedei-nos que, a exemplo de Maria e com a força do Espírito,
continuemos a proclamar o Evangelho de Vosso Filho Jesus Cristo,
para Vossa glória e salvação do mundo que criastes e libertastes.
Amém!

PRIÈRE pour le Chapître Général Bagamoyo 2012
Père, tu as envoyé autrefois l’Esprit de ton Fils
sur nos ancêtres-fondateurs,
Claude Poullart des Places et François Libermann.

Grâce à eux et à des générations de spiritains,
notre Congrégation n’a cessé de se dévouer
au service de l’évangélisation des pauvres.

Alors que nous nous préparons à célébrer
notre XX° Chapitre général, à Bagamoyo,
nous te prions de répandre de nouveau ton Esprit sur toute la Congrégation.

Qu’Il nous rassemble en une seule et grande famille,
pour mieux entendre les appels de notre temps !

Qu’Il nous donne une nouvelle ferveur pour approfondir,
dans ton Eglise, notre consécration
et notre témoignage missionnaires !

Qu’à l’exemple de Marie, par la force de l’Esprit,
nous continuions à donner naissance à ton Fils
pour ta gloire et la vie de ce monde que tu as créé et libéré !
Amen !
