Throughout the Congregation, and particularly in the Asia Pacific region, Good Shepherd Partners in Mission (sisters and lay) are united in prayer and solidarity with the people of Myanmar during this time of struggle.
You may wish to participate in this reality based Holy Week reflection, created by a Myanmar person who now lives in another country. (Endorsed by the province leader of East Asia.)

Concluding Prayer: Jesus, our Companion,
Thank you for being gentle, loving compassionate and self-giving.
You are so nonviolent that you inspire us and draw us to live in truth, love and forgiveness. May this journey of solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Myanmar give us courage to choose your way of nonviolence and to create peace and justice on this Earth.
Make us your instrument of peace, that we might, even in a small way, turn war, oppression, violence into freedom, compassion and love. Bless our brothers and sisters in Myanmar with your love and care. Bless their passion, courage and great desire for freedom and peace. Touch hearts of the oppressors with your compassion that they too experience the power of the Eternal Love and Peace.
As we are called to follow you, Jesus, help us to be peacemakers, to live in your peace, love and compassion and to bring your Kin-dom on this Earth always forever and ever.
