Loving Father, send fourth the power of your Holy Spirit
upon the seminarians of our Archdiocese
who are discerning a vocation to the priesthood.
Grant them the graces they need
at this time in their lives,
particularly the graces of clarity, simplicity of heart,
and deep trust that will enable them
to continue to respond generously to your call.
Give them wisdom and insight, Lord,
that they may know your will,
and grant them the courage they need
to follow it with all their hearts.
Mary, we entrust our seminarians
to your Maternal Intercession.
Teach them to be generous, faithful men
who desire to draw close to your Son, Jesus.
We ask all this through the intercession of
Mary, Mother of the Church,
Saint Joseph, patron of the Universal Church,
Saint John Vianney, patron of priests,
and in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen.
