Prayers for Seminarians and Vocations

Almighty and eternal God, in your unfailing love you provide ministers for your Church. We pray for those whom you call to serve the Church of Pittsburgh as priests. Inspire in them a generous response. Grant them courage and vision to serve your people. May their lives of service call your people to respond to the presence of your Spirit among us, that, faithful to the Gospel and hope of Jesus Christ, we may announce glad tidings to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives, set prisoners free, and renew the face of the earth. Amen.
Diocese of Pittsburgh

O Lord, send workers for your harvest, so that the commands of your only-begotten Son may always be obeyed and his sacrifice be everywhere renewed. Look with favor upon your family, and ever increase its numbers. Enable it to lead its sons to the holiness to which they are called and to work for the salvation of others. Amen.
Enchiridion of Indulgences, no. 37
