Tuesday, February 2nd

MORNING PRAYER

Today is the World Day for Consecrated Life. It is the day that the Catholic Church invites us all to reflect on the role of Consecrated Life within the Christian community. Those who choose to live a consecrated life do so for the sake of sharing the gospel with others. Some Christian women and men respond to God’s call to become followers of Jesus through profession of vows and a life dedicated to prayer and service. They live out the consecrated life in different ways within the faith community.   


God our Father, 

We thank you for calling men and women to serve in youKingdom. 

Renew their knowledge and love of you, 

and send your Holy Spirit to help them respond generously

and courageously to your will. 

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, 

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen
