Holy Orders

“The ministerial priesthood differs in essence from the common priesthood of the faithful because it confers a sacred power for the service of the faithful. the ordained ministers exercise their service for the People of God by teaching (munus docendi), divine worship (munus liturgicum) and pastoral governance (munus regendi).” Catechism of the Church 1592.

Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Consecrated Life

Almighty and merciful Father,
you inspire and bring to fulfillment every good intention.
Guide your people in the way of salvation
and watch over those who shepherd your flock
and those who have left all things to follow you.
Raise up worthy ministers for your altars,
ardent but gentle servants of the Gospel,
and generous souls who renounce worldly power and profit
to serve you and their brothers and sisters faithfully
in the spirit of poverty and humility.
Inspire our young men and women to respond to your call
so that your Church might always rejoice
in plentiful servants for your harvest.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
