Lord, in Your love for the Church,
You provide bishops, priests, and deacons
as shepherds for Your people,
and You call men and women
to leave all things to serve You joyfully in religious life.
May those whom You have raised up
as servants of the Gospel
and ministers for Your altars
show forth dedication
May those whom You have chosen
to serve You as religious
provide, by their way of life,
a convincing sign of Your Kingdom
for the Church and the whole world.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
