Prayer To Saint Joseph for vocations
O glorious St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, behold, the great need for priests and consecrated religious here in the Diocese of Birmingham!
Help the good men and women whom God is calling to respond promptly and courageously to His call. During this Year dedicated to you, obtain for us many holy vocations. Take from our number those needed for the Lord’s service!
Graciously hear and answer our prayer through the love you bear to Jesus Christ and His Mother, Blessed Mary, your spouse, and for the glory of His holy Name. Amen.
