Visiting the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land


#1

On Monday (09/21), I will be flying up to Washington, DC to spend a week (I’ll be returning on 09/28) at the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land’s American monastery. Basically, they are the religious order tasked with overseeing the major parishes/shrines/etc. in the Holy Land (i.e. the Church of the Holy Sepulcher) and I am strongly considering discerning a vocation to the Priesthood with them.

Please pray for me that I have a safe trip and that my visit is productive as I try to move forward vocationally.

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 death.

Amen.

PRAYER TO ST. MONICA

Dear St. Monica,
troubled wife and mother,
many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.
Yet, you never despaired or lost faith.
With confidence, persistence, and profound faith,
you prayed daily for the conversion
of your beloved husband, Patricius,
and your beloved son, Augustine;
your prayers were answered.
Grant me that same fortitude, patience,
and trust in the Lord.
Intercede for me, dear St. Monica,
that God may favorably hear my plea for

(Mention your intention here.)

and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
