POPE FRANCIS' PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

God our Father, You made each of us, to use our gifts in the Body of Christ.
We ask that you inspire young people whom you call to priesthood and consecrated life to courageously follow your will.
Send workers into your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments.
Through Christ our Lord.  Amen

OCTOBER

October is the month of the Rosary.  Consider taking an opportunity this month to pray the rosary, asking God through the intercession of Mary, to help all people come to a greater respect for all human life - for the unborn, the elderly, and those ill and suffering.
