VOCATION REFLECTION:

Blessed are they who have not seen, yet believe. What will it take for me to respond to God’s call to priesthood or religious life? (John 20:19-31)

 

Prayer of Entrustment to Divine Mercy
O Lord, our God,
we place our trust in you, because you are mercy itself. We repent of our sins and turn to you for mercy.
Help us to forgive others as you forgive us. We promise to be merciful by our deeds, words and prayers.
Though we have fears because of human weakness, we rely on your infinite goodness and mercy. 
We entrust to you the future of our planet, our Church, our country South Africa, our families and all our needs.  
With loud cries we implore your mercy on us and on the whole world.
Look upon us, created in your image and likeness.
Form us in the Heart of Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit into the living images of mercy.
May all come to know the depth of your mercy and sing the praises of your mercy forever. 
Amen!
