HOLY LAND - Please find below the prayer of this week prepared by the Sisters of the Order of the Most Holy Savior of Saint Bridget, Mary's House in Bethlehem, for the 58th world day of prayer for priestly and religious vocations.
"O Jesus the Good Shepherd, on today's 58th world day of prayer for priestly and religious vocations, we ask you, through the intercession of St. Joseph, guardian of vocations, raise up in the Church people who know to listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd and follow him courageously through a valid testimony of life, in order to attract the scattered sheep in one flock under one Shepherd.
You who care for all of us, be merciful to all humanity, especially today, in this time marked by fragility and suffering. Lord Jesus give us renewed hope by virtue of your glorious Resurrection. Amen."
The Religious Families of the Holy Land, in collaboration with the Pastoral Office of the Latin Patriarchate, share a weekly prayer with the faithful that tackles a pertinent theme. The intention can be included in the prayer of the faithful (also in Vespers or Lauds).
