Together, let us pray on April 25th a Marian Prayer for Vocations so that the hearts and minds of men and women will be open to those vocations to which the Lord is calling them.
“O Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, and Mother of the Church, to you we commend our young people, in particular those called to closely follow your Son as brothers, sisters, deacons, and priests. You know, O Mary, the difficulties, struggles, doubts, and obstacles they must face. Assist them to answer “yes” to the divine call, as you did at the invitation of the angel. Draw them near to your heart so that they can understand the beauty and the joy that awaits them when they answer your Son’s call to be witnesses of His love in the world. Amen.”
