God, we pray for more men to courageously answer the call to serve you in our Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown as a priest. We ask that you bless our seminarians. May they persevere and serve in the Diocese as good and faithful priests, but may they do so in accord with your holy will, Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Saint John Vianney, pray for us.
Servant of God Demetrius Gallitzin, pray for us.
Lord Jesus, I know that you love me and that you call me to follow you. Help me to listen to your call in all the ways you speak to me: through prayer and the Scriptures; through the Church; through the people who know me and love me; through the circumstances of my life; through my own hopes and desires. Guide me to search openly and carefully and to learn about life’s choices, so that I may respond generously to your call and to know and embrace the vocation that will enable me to love wholeheartedly, and serve others with the gifts you have given to me. Help me to know and do your will. Thank you for your love for me and for all that the future holds for me. Lord Jesus, I put my trust in you. Amen.
