Vocations

I give thanks to God
for the witness of
religious men and women
who selflessly serve this Church.

~Bishop Daniel Jenky, CSC, DD

Prayer for Vocations

Lord Jesus Christ, Shepherd of souls, who called apostles to be fishers of men, raise up new apostles in your Holy Church. Teach them that to serve you is to reign: to possess you is to possess all things. Kindle in the young hearts of your people the fire of zeal for souls. Make them eager to spread your Kingdom upon Earth. Grant them courage to follow you, who are the Way, the Truth and the Life; who lives and reigns for ever and ever.   Amen.

Prayer to Know Your Vocation

Heavenly Father, you created us in such a way that each has a vocation in life to pursue for the good of the whole human race and your Church. Help me to know my vocation and to follow it with joy and dedication. No matter what problem I encounter, let me never lose hope, aware that you have given me the grace and talents to succeed in any vocation you call me to.   Amen.

“The only purpose of our prayers and our sacrifices is to be an apostle of the apostles, to pray for priests while they evangelize souls.”
– St. Therese of Lisieux
