Let us pray for an outpouring of fervent and faithful vocations to the Religious Life!
Beginning with the World Day of Consecrated Life (February 2) and concluding before the celebration of our Mother Foundress (Mother Luisita died on February 11), it is our hope that many, many, MANY of our family, friends, co-workers, residents, students, and Facebook ‘followers’ will join us in praying for an increase in vocations to the Religious Life. We are aiming for 10,000 people joining us in prayer for this intention! Let us BEG the Master of the Harvest to send out laborers for His harvest!
Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life
there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone:
a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community….
This is why Jesus said: “Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest”,
that is, God the Father, “to send out laborers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38).
Vocations are born in prayer and from prayer;
and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit.
– Pope Francis, April 21, 2013
