During this time of Easter joy, it is
important to reflect on the leaders in the Church, those who dedicated to
consecrated life. 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.
Religious sisters, nuns, brothers, religious priests, and monks consecrate
their lives through their profession of the evangelical vows and live as part
of a community.
God our Father,
We thank you for calling men and women
to serve in your Son’s Kingdom
brothers, monks, deacons, priests, and bishops.
Renew their knowledge and love
and send your Holy Spirit
to help them respond generously and
courageously to your will.
Renew in them, and in us, our Easter joy.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ.
