Sunday, April 21st is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. We ask that you please continue to pray for people to respond to the call to discern religious life and ordained ministry. Here is a prayer we invite you to pray:
PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Let us pray to the Lord of the harvest who calls men and women to loving service. [Pause] All glory and praise are yours, God of truth, light of our hearts, for you guide your people in the ways of holiness. Help those who follow in the footsteps of Augustine to seek you through mutual love and worship and to be servants of your Church as examples that others may follow. Enlighten men and women to see the beauty of common life in the spirit of Saint Augustine, and strengthen them in your service so that the work you have begun in them may be brought to fulfillment. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
If you are near Villanova University, after each of the Masses on Sunday evening, April 21, 2013, you are invited to Tracy Lounge in St. Rita Hall for refreshments and to discuss any thoughts you may have about vocations to religious life and ordained ministry.
All are welcome.
