Prayer for Vocations
Father in Heaven, we give you thanks for sending your Son Jesus Christ, into the world to be our Lord, Savior and High Priest. We believe that, in the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus won for us the gift of eternal life by His Sacrifice on the Cross. We believe that Jesus renews this Sacrifice in the Holy Eucharist, through the ministry of His priests.
Father, we earnestly beseech you to raise up holy priests in your Church. Grant young men the strength to accept generously the call to the priesthood. May they joyfully give their lives so that all your people can receive your holy Word and Sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist, the great gift of the Body and Blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior and High Priest, in whose name we make our prayer. Amen.
+Cardinal Justin Rigali, former Archbishop of St. Louis
