Prayer for Vocations


PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

 

Spirit of eternal Love,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

we thank You for all the vocations

of apostles and saints which have enriched the Church.

Continue, we pray, this work of Yours.

Remember when, at Pentecost,

You descended on the Apostles gathered together in prayer

with Mary, the mother of Jesus,

and look upon your Church which today has

particular need of holy priests,

of faithful and authoritative witnesses of your grace;

she needs consecrated men and women,

who show the joy of those who live only for the Father,

who  make their own the mission and the offering of Christ,

who build up in charity the new world.

Holy Spirit, eternal Spring of joy and peace,

it is You who open the heart and the mind to the divine call;

It is you who make effective every impetus

towards good, towards truth, towards charity.

Your “inexpressible groans”

rise up to the Father from the heart of the Church,

which suffers and struggles for the Gospel.

open the hearts and minds of young men and women,

so that a new flowering of holy vocation

may show forth the fidelity of your love,

And all may know Christ,

the true light come into the world

to offer to every human being

the sure hope of eternal life. Amen

 

by Blessed John Paul II
