O Beloved Jesus, the martyrs of Orange were thirty-two nuns of several religious orders and were jailed during the French Revolution. In that dismal prison cell, they formed into a single community. They prayed together, encouraged each other, and bonded in love. I ask them to pray for the community of my parish, my circle of friends, and small faith sharing groups in all churches. O Lord, raise up more groups that are true communities in the way we pray together and in the way we love each other. Help us to overcome the loneliness of individualism and self-centeredness that is so common today. Martyrs of Orange, pray for us. Amen.
