Loving and merciful God, 
You gave us life and You called us by name. 
In the sacrament of Baptism, You gave us a share in the like and mission of Jesus Christ. 

As we follow Jesus, our way, in His suffering, death, and resurrection, we ask You to bless and strengthen all men and women, all the lay faithful and those in the ordained ministry – our deacons, priests, and bishops.

 Send forth Your Spirit to young men and women who are discerning their vocations in life. 
Give young people the courage to listen and follow Your call especially to the priesthood and the consecrated life.
 Enrich our community with many lay missionaries, married and single people living the universal call to holiness. 

Give Your people shepherds after Your own heart, ministers who radiate joy in their service because they follow Jesus, Your Son, and our Good Shepherd, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever. Amen.

Saint John Paull II, pray for us.
Saint Gregory the Great, pray for us.
Mary, Our Mother of Salvation, pray for us.
