Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  

Amen.

6 Steps in Vocational Discernment

::Prayer for Vocations::

Holy Father, look upon this humanity of ours that is taking it's first steps along the path of the Third Millennium.  Its life is still deeply marked by hatred, violence and oppression, but the thirst for justice, truth and grace still finds a space in the hearts of many people, who are waiting for someone to bring salvation, enacted by You through Your Son Jesus.  There is the need for courageous heralds of the Gospel, for generous servants of suffering humanity.  Send holy priests to Your Church, we pray, who may sanctify your people with the tools of Your grace.  Send numerous consecrated men and women, that they may show Your holiness in the midst of the world.  Send holy laborers into Your vineyard, that they may labor with the fervor of charity and, moved by Your Holy Spirit, may bring the salvation of Christ tot the farthest ends of the Earth. Amen.  (Saint John Paul II)
