Vocation Reflection
The Lord has risen! It is true! Proclaim it to the world! Pray for those who are called to priesthood and religious life. (John 20: 1-9).

GOD OF UNENDING JOY, you have set us free from sin and death through the rising of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. In this season of renewed hope, we rejoice and pray that throughout the year we may be faithful to our baptismal promises. Help us to find hope all around us, to believe in your mercy even when we cannot see it, and to proclaim your goodness to the world. Alleluia.
