SVD-Partner, the lay partners of the Divine Word Missionaries in Germany (SVD), live in different places in Germany. Each one works in his or her home place. The modern communication medias make help to stay in contact at all times. But it is also important to be spiritually connected, to have a time in which the group comes together. For this, the SVD-Partner have a prayer of their own: the Monday Prayer. It consists of three parts: the prologue of the Gospel of John, which is of special importance for the spirituality of the SVD, the Quarter Hour Prayer and a blessing prayer. The decision fell on Monday, since Monday is regarded as the day of the Holy Spirit and this was particularly important to the founder of the Order, St. Arnold Janssen.
