Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

For Priestly Vocations

Lord Jesus Christ,
Shepherd of souls,
who called the apostles
to be fishers of men,
raise up new apostles

in your holy Church.

Teach them
that to serve you
is to reign:
to possess you
is to possess all things.


in the hearts of your people
the fire of zeal for souls.

Make them eager to spread your Kingdom upon earth.

Grant them courage to follow you,
who are the Way,
the Truth,
and the Life;
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

(from the vocations website of the Diocese of Corpus Christi)

Happy National Vocations Awareness Week!
