Lord Jesus, as You once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men, let your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come follow Me! Give young men and women the grace of responding quickly to your voice. Support our bishops, priests and consecrated people in their apostolic labor. Grant perseverance to our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally consecrated to your service. Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness. Lord, SEND WORKERS TO YOUR HARVEST and do not allow humanity to be lost for the lack of pastors, missionaries and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel. Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say "yes" to the Lord who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation.
Loving and merciful God, in Baptism you called us by name making us members of your people, the Church. We praise you for your goodness, we thank you for your gifts. We ask you to strengthen us in our desire to follow Jesus, your Son. Look upon us with love and bless your Church with generous single men and women, with loving husbands and wives, with caring parents, with dedicated priests, deacons, sisters and brothers. You have called us to be faithful signs of your presence in the midst of the world. Help us to see our vocation as a journey towards You, We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
