TWO SACRAMENTS, A SINGLE VOCATION: LOVE

‘‘PRIESTS AND COUPLES TOGETHER ON THE PATH TO HOLINESS”
(Henri Caffarel)

Once you have looked at the video, you can take some time for interior prayer, before ending with Saint John-Paul II’s prayer.

Son of God, sent by the Father to the men and women of every time and of
every part of the earth!

We call upon you through Mary, your Mother and ours: may the Church not lack in vocations, especially those dedicated in a special way to your Kingdom. Jesus, only Saviour of mankind!

We pray to you for our brothers and sisters who have answered “yes” to your call to the priesthood, to the consecrated life and to the missions.

May their lives be renewed day by day, to become a living Gospel.

Merciful and Holy Lord, continue to send new labourers into the harvest of your Kingdom!

Assist those whom you call to follow you in our day; contemplating your face,
may they respond with joy to the wondrous mission that You entrust to them
for the good of your People and of all men and women.

You who are God and live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Saint John-Paul II
