Please pray for a real discernment for myself as I am a little bit interested in the Franciscan way of life as a brother! I have been for some years but it’s starting to really tug at my heart recently! Thank you
Praying for you. God bless 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.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are 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.
Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now ever shall be world without end
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
Be not afraid, why don’t you do a discernment week end with some Franciscans that your drawn to, look them up on the Web , fill out the form, and go for it, you have nothing to loose as all your doing is discerning, give them a ring to do a live in.
God Bless, Walk with the Lord as you discern on the Damascus Road.
I am also VERY interested in becoming a Franciscan friar! Feel free to message me sometime!
Lord guide my brother in Christ into what is Your plan for his life I pray in Jesus Name, Amen.
