Loving God and Father of all, we thank you for all that we are and have, and for all that we are able to do. We thank you most of all that, through baptism, we share in your life, and through your Holy Spirit, we are formed with Christ Jesus as your sons and daughters. Dedicated to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and urged on by the charism of our founder, Servant of God Father John Berthier, we pray that people of our time will be enlightened by the Spirit to discern their particular calling in life.
We pray especially for vocations which respond to the missionary task of the Church and contribute to the evangelization of all for the coming of the Kingdom of God. Enkindle with the fire and zeal of your love the hearts of those whom you have called to evangelize in far away places, different cultures, and wherever the Gospel needs to be proclaimed.
Awaken within the hearts of many a call to minister as religious sisters and brothers; as deacons or priests; as married couples or as single persons. Grant us all the grace to draw others to the Gospel, to promote vocations, and to commit ourselves to the pastoral care of families. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, enlighten us, help us, and save us! Amen.
