“In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.”
Every day the Daughters of the Resurrection in Kigali, Rwanda pray these words from Psalm 119 (120). “We trust in God, the Lord of the world,” writes their Superior, Mother Marie Rose. The Psalms, daily adoration from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and the Rosary, straight afterwards, “help us to persevere,” she tells us. So far there have been no cases of coronavirus in their communities in Rwanda. But with the general lockdown, all the little daily income they once earned, from working in the drop-in clinic or the kindergarten, has dried up, and their meagre reserves, which they shared with the poor, are now exhausted. All around them they hear of robberies, killings, fear and panic. In their distress the Sisters have turned to us for help. There are 57 of them. We have promised AUD$42,600.
