+++ A Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood +++

Heavenly Father, in every age, You call men
to serve at Your altar as Your priests
and servants of Your people to witness to the Gospel

 and to be like Your Son, the Great High Priest.
Through the intercession of St. Francis de Sales,
Patron Saint of the Diocese of Wilmington,
please grant our Diocese many good and holy priests;
Help me to discern what You want for my life,
and always give me the courage to say Yes to You.
May I not lose heart in considering my own weaknesses,
but be willing to answer Your call,
so You might fulfill your designs in me
and I might accomplish Your Holy Will. Amen.
Holy Mary, Mother of Priests, pray for us!
St. Francis de Sales, pray for us!
St. John Vianney, pray for us!
