Have you ever considered the priesthood?
If you are a young man and the thought of priesthood has ever crossed your mind, or if you’re just trying to figure out what you are supposed to do with your life and how you can serve others, feel free to contact me to discuss it. My email is FrMGoodyear@stpatscs.org.
Prayer for Seminarians…
Jesus, eternal Priest, bless these men who have answered Your call to holiness and service. Give them humility, meekness, and prudence. Give them a burning desire to serve You. Fill their hearts with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to know and love the Church. Teach them how to pray. Teach them to know and love You, the eternal priest. Good Shepherd, hear my prayer for seminarians. Amen.
O Lady, conceived without sin, guide our seminarians. Amen.
Prayer for My Vocation…
God our Father, my very life is a gift. Thank You. Through baptism, You have invited me to share in the gift of my life in service to others. Be with me as I choose each day to show Your Presence in the world. Give me the courage and generosity to respond to Your love, to Your call. Open my mind and heart I may accept Your Will in my life. Amen.
O Lady, conceived without sin, guide me. Amen.
Prayer for Priests…
Almighty and Eternal God, in Your unfailing love You provide ministers for Your Church. Grant Your priests prudence, the first of all virtues. Build them up with Your holy gifts of fortitude, wisdom, and piety. Inspire them to reverence, that we too may be reverent. Bless the hands of Your priests, that they may serve You. Amen.
O Lady, conceived without sin, guide our priests. Amen.
