Prayer for Vocations

Below is the text of our new Diocesan Prayer for Vocations.  Prayer cards are currently being distributed to all of the parishes and Catholic schools of the diocese.  The cards are available in both English and Spanish.

 

Prayer for Vocations

 

Lord God,

in your tender mercies

you give your holy people every good gift.

We turn to you today in our need,

asking that you bless our Diocese

with an abundance of vocations to

the priesthood and religious life.

Inspire us with your Holy Spirit

to help young men and women

hear your call and

respond with joyful hearts.

We also ask that you bless our priests

and all who serve us

in the Church today.

May they know every grace and joy

as you bring to completion

the many good works begun in them.

We ask this in faith,

through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Diocese of Salina

Oración por las Vocaciones

 

Señor Dios,

en tu tierna misericordia

das a tu pueblo todo lo que es bueno.

Nos dirigimos a ti en nuestra necesidad.

Bendice a nuestra diócesis

con abundantes vocaciones al

sacerdocio y vida religiosa.

Inspíranos con tu Espíritu Santo

para ayudar a jóvenes,

hombres y mujeres a

escuchar tu llamado y responder

con corazones alegres.

Bendice a nuestros sacerdotes

y a todos los que sirven en tu iglesia.

Que gozando de tu gracia y alegría

se cumpla el trabajo

que has comenzado en ellos.

En fe te lo pedimos,

por Cristo nuestro Señor.

Amén.
