Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Prayer for Vocations
Father, we're your people, the work of your hands.
So precious are we in your sight that you sent your Son,
Jesus. Jesus calls us to heal the broken-hearted,
to dry the tears of those who mourn, to give hope to those
who despair, and to rejoice in your steadfast love.
We, the baptized, realize our call to serve.
Help us to know how. Call forth from among us priests,
sisters, brothers and lay ministers. With our hearts you
continue to love your people. We ask this through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.

Today in Ordinary Time...
Liturgy of the Hours-"Praying the Breviary"
"Seven times a day I praise you, because your judgments are righteous." PS 119:164
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
