Please join with us now in reciting the Prayer for Vocations

 

          Heavenly Father, call many holy young people to consecrated life for the sake of your Kingdom.  Call an abundance of virtuous men to serve in ordained ministry, as laborers for your harvest.  Call numerous others to faithful, chaste and fruitful love in the sacrament of marriage, as signs and witnesses of Christ’s love for his Church.  Through baptism you have called all your children, in whatever state of life, to love and serve you.  Fill us with your Holy Spirit and grant us each the grace to follow you in perfect obedience and charity.  With Mary and Joseph as our models and intercessors, we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

          Pray this Prayer as often as you can.  “The Harvest is great, but the laborers are few.”
