We are blessed to have this weekend to pray with grateful hearts for the vocations which we have and for the men who wish to share our way of life. Today, May 1st is the National Day Commemorating Religious Brothers and Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday.
We pray today for our friar-brothers who continue to witness to the joy of the Gospel by their consecration and service to the Church and Order. On Sunday, we pray for our friar-priests who witness to the shepherding of God’s people as followers of St. Francis.
May Our Lady, during this month of May, intercede for all of us that we may be joyful in the vocations we have received. May She intercede that men may join us as friars……Religious Brothers and Priests……journeying with God and God’s people.
Have a great day and month of May.
