A Prayer for Vocations
Lord Jesus, you said to your disciples “the harvest indeed is great but the labourers are few. Pray, therefore the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest.” We ask that we may know and follow the vocation to which you have called us.
We pray particularly for those called to serve as priests, brothers and sisters; those whom you have called, those you are calling now, and those you will call in the future. May they be open and responsive to the call of serving your people. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
(Diocese of Kerry- Adapted)
Prayer for Vocations
God our Father, into a world disfigured by sin you sent your Son that in him we might see the beauty of your care for us as we travel our pilgrim journey. Give us eyes of faith so that we may be alert to your love at work for us in every event of life. May we grow in wonder at your love that heals, that forgives, that strengthens, that consoles, that guides us into the way of peace. Let us grow in gratitude for the shepherds you give us, for those who are leaders by the good they do, for those who understand our thirst to grow, for those who take away our hearts of stone when life is difficult, for those who help us find peace. May the care and goodness we have known mould us into shepherds with caring hearts for those in need of support and inner strength. May we always have good shepherds who know the way to you, who show us the way to you, who make the gospel attractive by the way they live. May the different vocations and the different gifts truly enrich us. May those who are single, married, priests and Religious, find fulfilment in
living for you and build up the unity of your Church through their service as cheerful givers. (Bishop Martin Drennan)

Prayer to Saint Joseph
God, our heavenly Father, grant us the fortitude of Christ your Son to face the Covid-19 crisis with trust, patience and compassion. Give us the grace of the Holy Spirit to free us from fear and look forward together to the future with healing and hope. Through the intercession of Saint Joseph, the guardian of Jesus, and Mary his mother and Mother of the Church, may we be guided through this time of peril. Preserve us in peace; protect the vulnerable; keep safe our health care workers and all who serve society, at home and abroad. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. (Composed by Fr Kevin O’Gorman ,S.M.A.)

Why not make a little time for reading and contemplating God’s Word this weekend or during the week? There are many resources available online; www.tarsus.ie is a good place to begin. “The Bible in a Year” podcast with Fr. Mike Schmitz is available here.
