Good Shepherd Sunday
A Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood
Lord Jesus Christ, Shepherd of souls,
who called the apostles to be fishers of
men, raise up new apostles in your holy
Church. Teach them that to serve you is
to reign: to possess you is to possess all
things. Kindle in the hearts of our people
the fire of zeal for souls. Make them
eager to spread your Kingdom upon
earth. Grant them courage to follow
you, who are the Way, the Truth, and
the Life; who lives and reigns for ever
and ever. Amen
"We adore You, Jesus,
eternal Shepherd of the human race.
You are present in the Eucharist
to dwell continually
in the midst of Your people.
You nourish us,
You guard us,
You guide us to the heavenly fold."
Ven. James Alberione
