****Prayer for Vocations****

O God, Father of all Mercies, Provider of a bountiful Harvest, send Your Graces upon those You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor; preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.  Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will; inspire in them a love
and desire to surrender themselves to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.  Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers and grant Your Church’s needs, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
