We offer you this Prayer for the Vocations of St. John Paul II
Holy and provident Father, You are the master of the vineyard and the harvest, and you give to each the just reward for the work. In your plan of love you call men to collaborate with you in the salvation of the world. We thank You for Jesus Christ, Your living Word, who has redeemed us from our sins and is among us to help us in our poverty. Guide the flock to which you have promised the Kingdom. Send new workers to your harvest and instill in the hearts of the Shepherds fidelity to your project of salvation, perseverance in the vocation and holiness of life.
Christ Jesus, who on the shores of the Sea of Galilee called the Apostles and constituted the foundation of the Church and bearers of your gospel, encourage your People who walk in history. Instill value in those whom you have called to follow you in the priesthood and in consecrated life, so that they may fertilize the field of God with the Wisdom of your Word. Make them docile instruments of your Love in the daily service to the brethren.
Spirit of Holiness, which instills your gifts in all believers and particularly in those called to be ministers of Christ, help young people discover the attractiveness of the divine call. Teach them the true way of Prayer, which is nourished by the Word of God. Help them scrutinize the signs of the times, to be faithful interpreters of the Gospel and bearers of Salvation.
May Mary, Virgin of Listening and the Word made flesh in your heart, help us to be available to the Word of the Lord, so that, welcomed and pondered, may grow in our hearts. Help us to live as you live the happiness of believers and to dedicate ourselves with tireless charity to the evangelization of those who seek your Son. Give us to serve every man, making us agents of the Word heard, so that by staying faithful to it we may find our happiness in practicing it. Amen.
I am ready for this moment of prayer asking for the Holy Spirit.
Dialogue the answers with the Lord and I appreciate the meeting.
