Video Link: Vocations to the Priesthood (School and Classroom, RCIA, Confirmation Resource)
The UK Catholic Church has a higher number of Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious life than Ireland. They also have a greater emphasis on proper Catechesis and training for young Catholics. Since the visit of Pope Benedict XVI (now Emeritus), vocations have bloomed.
The Video above ends at about 14.30 minutes with questions on the content of the Video put up afterwards. Its a very powerful video. God bless all those who participated and who produced this wonderful resource.
Prayer for Vocations
Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world! We humbly beg of You to manifest in Your Church the Spirit Whom You did so abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles. Call, we pray You O Lord, very many to Your Priesthood and to the religious life. And may zeal for Your glory and the salvation of souls inflame those whom You have chosen; may they be saints in Your likeness, and may Your Spirit strengthen them. O Jesus, give us priests and religious according to Your own Heart !
O Mary, Mother of Jesus! Obtain for fervent souls the grace to hear and the courage to follow Your Divine Son in the path of religious perfection.
Queen of Apostles, pray for us.
Queen of Virgins, pray for us.
