"Vocations, the Gift of the Love of God."


"Whoever opens his heart to Christ will not only understand the mystery of his own

existence, but also that of his own vocation; he will bear the abundant fruit of grace."

- Pope John Paul II, Message for the 42nd World Day of Prayer for Vocations

Prayer of Discernment

O Lord, I do not know what to ask you.  You alone know my real needs, and you love me more than I even know how to love.  Enable me to discern my true needs which are hidden from me.  I ask for neither Cross nor consolation.; I wait in patience for you.  My heart is open to you.  For your great mercy’s sake, come to me and help me.  Put your mark on me and heal me, cast me down and raise me up.  Silently, I adore your holy will and your inscrutable ways.  I offer myself in sacrifice to you and put all my trust in you.  I desire only to do your will.  Teach me how to pray and pray in me, yourself.  Amen.
- Vasily Drosdov Philaret 1780-1867
