VOCATIONS: In 1964, Pope Paul VI instituted the Day of Prayer for Vocations and placed it on the Sunday on which the Gospel of the Good Shepherd is read at Mass. At that time, it was the Second Sunday of Easter, but after the liturgical reforms it is now the Fourth Sunday of Easter. On April 11, 1964, on the eve of the first day of prayer, he said, “The problem of having a sufficient number of priests has an immediate impact on all of the faithful: not simply because they depend on it for the religious future of Christian society, but also because this problem is the precise and inescapable indicator of the vitality of faith and love of individual parish and diocesan communities, and the evidence of the moral health of Christian families. …Wherever numerous vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life are to be found, that is where people are living the Gospel with generosity.” Let us take this duty seriously and often pray for vocations to priesthood and religious life.

POPE PAUL VI’S PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS: O Jesus, Divine Shepherd of Souls, who called the Apostles to become fishers of men, now call the ardent and generous hearts of our youth to make them Your followers and ministers. Let them share your thirst for that universal redemption for which you daily renew Your sacrifice upon the altar. O Lord Jesus, “always living to make intercession for us,” extend our horizons to the entire world, where so many brethren make silent supplication for the light of truth and the warmth of love, so that answering Your call, many young men may prolong here Your mission, edify your Mystical Body, the Church, and become “the salt of the earth and the light of the world.” Extend, O Lord, Your loving call to many pure and generous-hearted young women, that they may grow in their desire for evangelical perfection and may dedicate themselves to the service of the Church and their neighbors who so desperately need such assistance and charity. Amen
