Blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit.
We Worship and praise You,
Creator and Lord of all.
Risen Lord, make us generous people
more considerate towards other,
more honest with ourselves,
more faithful to you.
Through the Holy Spirit you give
to every Christian a unique calling
through which you provide
for the needs of your people.
You ask us to live lives of service
in our homes, in our work,
in our communities and in the Church.
A specific calling is to serve
in ministry in your Church.
Hear our prayers for all our needs as a Church. We pray especially for vocations to the
religious life and the diocesan priesthood.
Lord, in our diocese and in all our parishes
give to each person the grace needed
to discern, follow and fulfil their calling.
“Once we come to realise how much God has given us, a life of self-sacrifice, of working for him and for others, becomes a privileged way of responding to his great love.” – Pope Francis. Perhaps God is calling you to be a Diocesan Priest. A Come and See vocations retreat will be held in St Patrick’s College Maynooth on 18th/19th May. For details contact Fr Michael Moynihan at 0876551902.
Jesus is no hireling. The hireling doesn’t own the sheep, and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf approaching. Jesus is the Good shepherd. The sheep belong to him, and he is ready to die for them. Jesus made the most wonderful promises to those who belong to him. He said that none of them would ever be lost. No one would succeed in snatching from his care the sheep the Father has entrusted to him. The sheep that belong to him will be safe with him because the Father’s power is in him. He and the Father are one. And he will lead them to the pastures of eternal life.
