Religious Life

"Prayer itself, born in Catholic families, nurtured by programs of Christian formation, strengthened by the grace of the sacraments, is the first means by which we come to know the Lord's will for our lives. To the extent that we teach young people to pray, and to pray well, we will be cooperating with God's call. Programs, plans and projects have their place; but the discernment of a vocation is above all the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the Lord and his disciples. Young people, if they know how to pray, can be trusted to know what to do with God's call."
Pope Benedict XVI

Prayer for the celebration of World Day for Consecrated Life

God our Father,
we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom
as sisters, brothers, religious priests, consecrated virgins, and hermits,
as well as members of Secular Institutes.

Renew their knowledge and love of you,
and send your Holy Spirit to help them respond generously and courageously to your will.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives, and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
