O God, You sent Your Son, Jesus,
to bring eternal life
to those who believe.
I join Him in praying for labourers for Your harvest.
May Your Holy Spirit
inspire men and women
to continue his mission through Your priesthood,
diaconate, religious life
and lay ministry.
May this same Spirit
make known Your will
for my life.
Saviour of the world,
we humbly beg of Thee to revive in Thy Church
which Thou didst
so abundantly bestow on the Apostles.
Call, we pray Thee,
very many to Thy priesthood
and to the religious life.
And may zeal
for Thy glory
and the salvation
inflame those whom Thou hast chosen,
may they be saints in Thy likeness,
and may Thy Spirit
O Jesus, give us priests and religious
after Thine own Heart!

to honour our father and mother,
have compassion in Thy mercy,
on the souls of my father and mother;
forgive them their sins,
and grant that I may see them
in the joy of eternal brightness.
Through Christ our Lord.
