2 PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS by Pope Benedict XVI

3 O Father, raise up among Christians numerous and holy vocations to the priesthood, to keep the faith alive and guard the gracious memory of your Son Jesus …

4 … through the preaching of his word and the administration of the Sacraments, with which you continually renew your faithful.

5 Give us holy ministers of your altar, who are careful and fervent guardians of the Eucharist, the sacrament of the supreme gift of Christ for the redemption of the world.

6 Call ministers of your mercy, who through the sacrament of reconciliation, spread the joy of your forgiveness.

7 Grant, O Father, that the Church may welcome with joy numerous inspirations of the Spirit of your Son and, docile to His teachings,

8 may she care for vocations to the ministerial priesthood and to the consecrated life. Sustain the bishops, priests, and deacons, consecrated men and women,
