2019 Novena of Prayer For Oblate Vocations May 16th, 2019
The Missionary Oblates invite you from May 21st – 29th to pray for vocations to the Oblate Call and Mission. Especially we ask you to pray that young men will respond to God’s invitation to become Oblate priests and brothers. Each day we invite you to say the Novena Prayer and to meditate on the theme for the day. At the end of your short meditation we ask that you entrust this intention to Mary Immaculate, patroness of the Oblate Family, by praying the Hail Mary. Close to Jesus, close to Mary, we pray for the birth of new vocations.
Merciful Father, You Called St Eugene de Mazenod to send forth missionaries to proclaim and live the Gospel among the poor. Increase our love, we pray, for those who are most abandoned. Extend your loving Call to many young people in our community and grant them the desire to give of themselves, their lives, and their talents to the service of Jesus Christ and the Church. May more men of our area go forth as Brothers and Priests of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate to serve those who are in need. This we ask through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
