Thanking God for the first profession of vows of our newest brothers, let us now be united in prayer for vocation:
Loving God, help all your people to know their vocation in life, and assist them to prepare for it. For your greater glory and for the service of your people, call many to be priests and religious. May we, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus your Son, Be blessed abundantly with men and women chosen to share our mission of love. Mary, mother of the Church show your love for all people; encourage many vocations to priesthood and religious life. Amen.
