Prayer for those discerning the priesthood, and newly ordained priests


#1

***My heartfelt prayers to all men considering the priesthood, may you not turn away from the Holy Spirit urging you to explore this beautiful vocation, and for those who have been newly ordained…may they take their roles within the Church very seriously, and may God bless them on the journey!

If you are a priest reading this, or considering the priesthood…God bless you! We love you and thank you for your blessed service to The Church! ***

Yes, Amen.

He said to them, "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” Luke 10:2

Heavenly Father, in Jesus holy name we ask that those whom You have called to the priesthood may be open and responsive to the call of serving Your people.

O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many and holy priests.

***Suzanne, I have always been intrigued by that passage…I thought this was an appropriate prayer thread, since today marks the prayer day for vocations…our priest made a long mention of this in his homily today, it was so moving. I pray that more men come forward to consider this beautiful vocation. I watched Pope Benedict and the ordination of the priests for the Diocese of Rome today…I can’t imagine what an awesome day this must have been for those men!!

We visited a cloistered convent yesterday. This is very much on my mind. I will be sure to pray extra!

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;
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

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.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

We are praying the rosary after mass on the first sundays of the month now for vocations to the priesthood. We just started and the Knights of Columbus are leading it.

Wow, what timing. My DD just came home yesterday with the news that one of her friends is entering the Seminary next Fall to see if this is his calling or not. Let’s keep these young men in our prayers as well as those on the way to Ordination…
