Just a brief line here about an exciting new blog for you all to keep an eye on . . . The Arundel and Brighton Vocations blog, very aptly named, 'I will give you shepherds . . .'
Please join me in praying that more young (and not so young) men hear and respond to God's call.
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 labour;
preserve and strengthen them
in their lifelong service to 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.
Teach all your faithful to follow
their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
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.
