Modlitwa w intencji XXI Kapituły Generalnej

Boże, Ojcze miłosierdzia, spojrzyj łaskawie na swoich synów,
Zgromadzonych w jednym Duchu, wokół Twego Słowa,
Pociągniętych charyzmatem Ojca Dehona.

Wybierz i prowadź naszych współbraci,
którzy są powołani do pełnienia posługi władzy,
we wspólnym poszukiwaniu woli Bożej.

Daj nam, swojego Ducha miłości, służby i solidarności
aby nas uczynił wrażliwymi w wierze,
uzdolni do odpowiedzi na wyzwania dzisiejszego świata
i uchroni przed lękami, które mu zagrażają.

Niech Twój Syn, Jezus Chrystus nauczy nas żyć nie dla nas samych
ale w Nim dla innych.

Niech nas nauczy zaangażowania
w urzeczywistnianie (w Rodzinie Sercańskiej i w świecie)
Królestwa Jego Serca w duszach i społeczności. Amen.

Gebet zum XXI. Generalkapitel

Barmherziger Gott und Vater, schau voll Güte auf deine Söhne,
die eines Herzens und eines Sinnes versammelt sind,
um dein Wort zu hören,
erleuchtet vom Charisma Pater Dehons,
das du der Kirche geschenkt hast.

Erwähle und führe du unsere Mitbrüder,
denen der Dienst der Leitung anvertraut werden soll,
dass sie in brüderlicher Weise deinen Willen suchen. 

Sende uns deinen Geist der Liebe, der Dienstbereitschaft
und der Solidarität;
er mache uns aufmerksam im Glauben
um auf die Herausforderungen unserer Zeit antworten zu können,
ohne uns von Ängsten lähmen zu lassen.

Dein Sohn Jesus Christus lehre uns,
nicht für uns selber zu leben, sondern für ihn.

Lass uns seinem Beispiel der Verfügbarkeit folgen.

In der Dehonianischen Familie und in der Welt wollen wir uns einsetzen
für das Reich des Herzens Jesu in den Seelen und in der Gesellschaft. Amen

Doa Untuk Kapitel Jendral XXI

Ya Allah, Bapa yang maha murah,
pandanglah dengan penuh kasih,
putra-putramu yang berkumpul sehati sejiwa,
di sekitar SabdaMu,
yang disemangati oleh karisma Romo Dehon untuk Gereja semesta.

Pimpinlah dan terangilah para konfrater kami,
yang harus menjalankan karya pelayanan kepemimpinan,
untuk menemukan kehendakMu
di dalam semangat persaudaraan.

Limpahkanlah Roh kasihMu,
Roh pelayanan dan solidaritas,
sehingga dalam iman,
mereka menjadi lebih peka,
untuk menjawab permasalahan-permasalahan dunia,
dan agar tidak jatuh dalam ketakutan yang mengancamnya. 

PutraMu Yesus Kristus telah memberi pelajaran,
untuk hidup bukan bagi diri kami sendiri,
melainkan hidup bagi Dia.

Seturut teladanNya,
bantulah kami untuk mewujudkan kerajaan Hati Kudusnya,
di dalam semua jiwa dan di dalam masyarakat di seluruh dunia,
bersama dengan seluruh keluarga Dehoniana. Amin

God, Father of mercy, in your goodness keep us your sons dedicated to the Church with a heart united through attentiveness to your word and enlightenment by the charism of Fr. Dehon.

Select and guide those brothers of ours who shall exercise the ministry of authority on our behalf in the fraternal quest for the will of God.

Send your spirit of love on us, your spirit of service and solidarity, to make us sensitive in faith in our response to the demands made of us by the world, to make us unyielding to the threats we face.

Let your son Jesus teach us to live for Him and not for ourselves, to be available as He was available, to commit ourselves - in the Dehonian Family and in the world - to the establishment of the Reign of his Heart in souls and in society. Amen

Choose and guide our brothers
who exercise the ministry of authority
in the fraternal search for your will.

Send us your Spirit of love, of service and of solidarity

Prayer for the General Chapter 2003

Beloved Heart of Jesus, we of your Priests of the Sacred heart community in India, wish to contribute our intercessions for the successful outcome of the General Chapter in May of this year 2003.

We pray that the work the various Provinces have done in preparation for this Chapter be more and more refined and brought into a unity of purpose and decision which is directed by our own Spirit.

We pray that our General Superior and his councilors, together with all the delegates assembled with them, be open and sensitive to such new inspirations as your loving Heart distills into their hearts, by way of our Rule of Life, the spirit and example of our Founder, the hopes of our members and the demands of our times.

We pray that the choice by the delegates of the new General Superior and his Council will be your own choice, the will of the Father, guided by the Holy Spirit.

We offer this prayer in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Joseph our Protector, Blessed Juan de la Cruz Garcia Mendez, our Venerable Father Leo John Dehon and all those who, having gone before us, have begun to partake of the rewards prepared for those who have believed and have preserved in hope.

We rely humbly on your own faithfulness, as first told in such reassuring words by your Apostle To timothy: "If we are faithless, he remains faithful -- for he cannot deny himself." Amen
