Free "Prayers for Haiti" Book Offered Online

BOSTON, Massachusetts, JAN. 22, 2010 ( The Daughters of St. Paul are offering a free book of prayers for victims of the Haitian earthquake that struck Jan. 12.

The book, "A World on Its Knees: Praying for and With Our Brothers and Sisters in Haiti" was compiled by Sister Kathryn James Hermes, Franciscan Sister of Peace.

It includes prayers such as "Calm the Shaking of the Earth," "Solidarity of the Human Family," "A Prayer of a Rescue Worker," and "God, What's Going On?"

The book was produced by Pauline Books and Media, the publishing house of the Daughters of St. Paul.

It offers a "useful way to focus intentions and be in spirit with those who need us most," the organization's Web site affirmed.

It continued, "Let's get this into the hands of millions of people around the world who can't go to Haiti in person but can pray."

The prayers are offered for use "in bulletins, prayer groups, parishes or in the silence of your own heart."

Thanks for providing the link to this little prayerbook. Just to clarify, editor Sr Kathryn Hermes, FSP is a Daughter of St. Paul, not a Franciscan Sister of Peace (although she is a very peaceful person!). The "FSP" stands for Filiae Sancti Pauli ("Daughters of St Paul" in Latin).

Thanks, Sr. Anne, for correcting misinformation in this Zenit article. I love the evangelical ministry of the Daughters of St. Paul. Many times I've had the pleasure of browsing and buying books at the Pauline Books and Media bookstore in New York.
