Please join me and the rest of the Divine Word Missionaries, the Pink Sisters and the Blue Sisters in praying for the repose of the soul of Holy Spirit Missionary Sister Veronika Theresia Racková, SSpS who was called home to heaven last month.



Sister Veronika was native of Slovakia serving as head of St. Bakhita’s Medical Centre in Yei, South Sudan, Sr. Veronica was driving a car after taking a patient to hospital on the evening of May 16 when she was ambushed by gunmen suffering multiple fractures of the pelvis during the shooting.


Sr. Veronica has given her life and death for the people in South Sudan. Let us unite our prayers that her blood and death will be like a seed sown for greater peace to the people in South Sudan and the whole world. We entrust her to the love of the Triune God whom she loved until the end!
