Pray for Vocations in Scotland

Hello all!

I am 16, and discerning the Priesthood and from Scotland. Basically, I just wanted to ask that you can all pray for Vocations in Scotland, especially for the Diocesan Priesthood.

Currently, we have a steady number of men in seminaries, but there is still a need for many more, especially in some dioceses. I think I could have a vocation to the Priesthood, and I am meeting with the Vocations Director frequently now.

I ask not only your prayers for me and for vocations in our country, but I would really hope that God would call another man from my diocese to go through seminary with me. One of my worries is that I could end up being the only person in my year at Seminary, if I were called to go there. This may be a very foolish thing to ask for, but nonetheless, we need more Holy Men to be called to the Priesthood here in Scotland!

Pray for pious, devout, traditional and faithful men all over the world, that they might hear God’s call.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

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.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Praying for you and your intention. I have a special love for Scotland. It is the home of my ancestors and there is a castle there with our surname.

God bless you in your vocation.

I always pray for Scotland, the wonderful country where my great-grandmother was born and lived her early childhood, in Paisley.

Praying for your vocation and that other men answer the call. Scotland is my second home and always in my prayers.
