God of Mercy, your Son Jesus Christ lovingly fulfilled your will, and His death became the source of new life for the Church. Malgorzata Banas, a Nazareth sister of Nowogrodek, in following Jesus, accepted the challenges of her life and transformed them into a way of dedicated ministry to the Church. Grant that this faithful servant be counted among the blessed. May her witness of deep faith, courage, and love of neighbor help us to remain faithful to Jesus and His Church. Grant our petitions through her intercession. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
