Praying for priests and religious vocations - continued

This is a community prayer thread offering the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Priests and Religious Vocations.

Originally posted by our friend Trishie:

*“The priest has been taken out of humankind and appointed to act for men in their relations with God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins; and so he can sympathise with those who are ignorant or uncertain because he too lives in the limitations of weakness. That is why he has to make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. No one takes this honour on himself, but each one is called by God.” [Hebrews 5:1-4]

Heavenly Father, we offer this Divine Mercy Chaplet for vocations to Priesthood and Religious life, that they will respond and be faithful. We pray for the holiness and welfare of Your priests, that they will be true Shepherds of their people

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

Pictures
New pictures may be placed at the start of each chaplet in the Our Father and/or Hail Mary. Please be considerate of those on slow Internet connections and do not place pictures more frequently. When beginning a new chaplet you may copy and paste the image from another already on the thread or you may choose one of your own. The images must be smaller than 400 pixels high and 400 pixels wide. They must also be appropriate for our participants who are as young as age 13, so no graphic imagery.
