Lord, there are so many things in my life that I do not understand,
so many questions about the future that I need to ask.

What is Your plan for me?
What is the work you want me to do?

All I really know is that You love me.
Show me the road You want me to walk-to fulfillment, to happiness, to holiness.

And if You are calling me to the religious life, give me the strength to say “yes”
and the grace to begin even now to prepare myself for the challenge of a life spent
in Your service and in the care of Your people.


Theodore Cardinal Marrick, “Prayer for Vocations”
