Parish Vocations Prayer

This vocations prayer, which I saw on the New Liturgical Movement (see Fr. Z for the original version), is very inspiring. I plan to adapt it somewhat and have prayer cards made to be used daily in my future parish assignment.

Does anyone have a suggestion for an image that might go on such a holy card?

(I adjusted it for “you” and “your” instead of “thee/thou” and “thy”.)

Leader: Let us pray for vocations.
All: O God, we earnestly beseech you * to bless the Church with many priests, * brothers, * and sisters, * who will love you with their whole strength, * be faithful to their vocation, * and gladly spend their entire lives * to teach your truths, * serve your Church, * and to make you known and loved.

Leader: Bless our families, bless our children.
All: Choose from our homes * those who are needed for your work.

Leader: O Mary, Queen of the Clergy,
All: Pray for us. * Pray for our priests, seminarians, and religious. * Obtain for us many more. * Amen.

    You might use an image of the Annunciation.

    How about a picture of your ordination as the image?

  4. Magdalena says:

    A classic choice might be one of the many paintings of the Calling of St. Matthew.

    A drawing of a family at the dinner table would be very telling for the holy card. It covers community and service and sharing a meal and loving one another

  6. Leslie says:

    Hope you make your prayer cards available,Fr. J…..we could sure use them in our Diocese.
