Pray with us this Vocations Sunday
Posted: Sun, 03 May 2020 07:30
'Vocation' is God's call guiding us to the path in life that will fulfill his plan for us. It touches our deepest purpose in life and can bring us the contentment of knowing and feeling we are 'in the right place'. It is a call each of us needs to listen for, whatever stage of life we are in. Please pray today and all this week for all who are discerning their vocation, and for Salesians of Don Bosco in formation.
The video above is about the special call to life as Salesians of Don Bosco. Each day during this Vocations Week, we will be uploading videos of SDBs talking about their own vocation, which you can watch on the Vocations playlist on our YouTube channel.
St Francis de Sales on vocation
A good vocation is simply a firm and constant will to serve God in the way and in the places to which he has called us.
Please join us in praying especially for an increase in vocations to the Salesians of Don Bosco and Salesian Sisters
A prayer for Salesian Vocations
Good Father, you guide your people each day, desiring to bring us to springs of living water. Help me to hear your voice more clearly in my life, so that my heart may be filled with your love.
Through the intercession of Saints John Bosco and Mary Mazzarello, call members of your flock to become signs and bearers of your love to the young and the poor.
Inspire many people to offer their lives to you, so that your love may be made visible in them.
Raise up many good and worthy shepherds to serve you as Brothers, Sisters and Priests in the Salesian Family of the British Province. Give them the strength and grace they need to respond generously to your call to give their lives in the service of others.
I ask this prayer through your Son Jesus Christ, who is Lord for ever and ever.
