Discouraged discerner

It’s always darkest before the dawn. This delayed Vocation, who I have been supporting, works in a nursing home and the death rate is getting to her.

I told her to call on the Holy Name of Mary, and consider that perhaps she is nearing her vocational goal.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.

Amen

I pray that God resolves this situation. Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

She’s feeling better. Thanks for the prayers.

I wish to add an intention for those who work in nursing homes, may they come to grips with the fact that people don’t get better, unless they’re in rehab. My own mom had to be told that when my grandmother had reached that level of care.

Prayer to Know Vocation

My Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our salvation,
I implore You, through the merits of Your Passion,
to give this lady the light and strength to choose
that state of life which is best for her salvation.
