VOCATION REFLECTION:My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. As a church, let us pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. (Isaiah 56: 6-7)
SALVE REGINA Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
