Prayer of the Month – December 2022

Nov 30, 2022 | Prayer of the Month

Lord, bless all volunteers, who go out to encounter the flesh of Christ, to touch it, to care for it, to be close to it. And have mercy on the many who, in the face of all this poverty, simply turn their backs and who hear in their hearts a voice which says:  “This does not affect me, this is not important to me”. Help all volunteers, and give them strength, making them humble. Keep them close to the merciful heart of Jesus. Amen.

– Pope Francis

We pray that religious women and men, and seminarians grow in their own vocations through their human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.
