48th World Day of Prayer for Vocations

Home Mission Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, who, for the salvation of all people, founded Your Church in the Blood of Sacrifice, look with mercy on this land of ours where Your truth is unknown to many for whom You endured Your passion and death. We commend to Your Sacred Heart the work of carrying Your gospel to the mission regions of America. Raise up holy and zealous apostles to bring Your words of salvation to souls now thirsting for the truth. Have mercy on them, Lord, and send shepherds to lead them into Your one true fold. Amen!

Our Lady of the Fields, pray for them.
Saint Joseph, friend of forgotten souls, pray for them.
Holy Apostles and Martyrs, pray for them.
Holy Confessors and Virgins, pray for them,
that through our labors we may hope to win for them the Divine gift of faith.

—Father William Howard Bishop
Founder of Glenmary, 1939
