Blessed Hanna Chrzanowska – pray for us.

God for His great works praising-
Jesus Christ in the mystery of the Cross finding
Diligently exploring the Word of God
In the Eucharist, uniting with Christ,
Drawing abundantly from Benedictine spirituality –
In prayer, the strength of faith, hope and love strengthens –
With Mary rushing to help those in need –
With the Sorrowful Mother of the tormented, compassionate –
Serving Christ himself in the sick –
Looking for support in the Holy Church –
Collaborating with the shepherds of the Church in caring for the sick
Radiating with the heat of God’s love –
Eight Beatitudes incarnate being-
Self-sacrificing deeds of mercy
Defending the sanctity of life from conception to death –
Teaching the art of nursing wisely –
Nurses’ consciences forming-
The simplest services towards the sick undertaken by
Struggling for the dignity of the nursing profession –
Persistently searching for the sick and abandoned
Taking in exiles and orphans –
Restoring hope and joy of life to the disabled –
Taking care of the bodies and souls of her clients –
Mediating in reconciling the sick with God –
The custom of Holy Mass in the sick person’s home introduced by
Guarding the patient’s dignity with great tact,
In the face of human misery, compassion arouses –
For Samaritan service to the sick, many incendiary-
To meet the sick and suffering, educators
God in the beauty of the world, discovering for yourself and others –
A cheerful spirit that dispels sadness –
Enduring adversity bravely and confidently –
Sacrificing everything that was hers for the sick –
Fulfilling the nursing vocation gloriously –
devoted to God and man with all her heart –
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, hear us, Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

K. Pray for us, blessed Hanna.
W. May we bear witness to mercy with our whole lives.

Let’s pray.
God, You called blessed Hanna to serve the sick, the poor and the abandoned. Grant that she, who responded to Your call with all her heart, would constantly encourage us by her example to help others. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
