Lord, make me a better person: more considerate towards others, more honest with myself, more faithful to Thee. Help me to find my true vocation in life and grant that through it I may find happiness myself and bring happiness to others. Grant, Lord, that those whom Thee call to enter Priesthood or Religious Life may have the generosity to answer Thy call, so that those who need Thy help may always find it. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for Religious Vocations “O Divine Jesus, Son of the Eternal Father and of Mary Immaculate, Thou didst leave Thy Mother and Thy foster-father St. Joseph, for three days in Jerusalem as a mere child to do the Will of Him Who sent Thee and to be about Thy Father’s business. Through the merits of this painful separation, grant to children a great desire to consecrate themselves to Thy service. Give them true generosity in following Thy Call, and bestow upon them the grace to persevere in overcoming all obstacles to their vocation. Give to parents, likewise, the faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice which will make them consent when a child of theirs is sincerely called to the Religious Life. Let Thy example, and that of Thy Blessed Mother and St. Joseph encourage both children and parents, and let Thy grace sustain them. Amen.” ⚜️🌹
