Prayer to Blessed Mary Theresa
O God, who called blessed Mary Theresa, Virgin,
from the court of princes
so that she might live solely for Christ and His Church,
grant through her intercession
that all our life be filled with your love
and spent in the service of our brothers and sisters.
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Prayer to St. Peter Claver
Lord, for love of you
St. Peter Claver became
the faithful servant of slaves.
Through his prayer
help us to see the true dignity of the human family,
all children of one father
and to spend ourselves for their salvation.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.
O God you desire that all men should be saved
and come to the knowledge of your truth.
Send laborers into your harvest
and grant that they may spread the Word
with compete confidence
so that your Gospel may be heard and glorified,
and all nations know you, the one true God,
and Him whom you have sent, Jesus Christ your Son, Our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever. Amen.
(From the Liturgy)
Prayer for Vocations
Lord make me a better person,
More considerate towards others,
More honest with myself,
More faithful to you.
Help me to find my true vocation in life,
and grant that through it,
I may find happiness myself
and bring happiness to others. Grant that those whom you call to enter
the priesthood or the Religious Life
may have the generosity to answer your call,
so that those who need your help may always find it.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
