Refining fire

Woman giving thanks after Communion ~ Alphonse Legros

"The Holy Eucharist is a fire that purifies
and consumes all our miseries and imperfections.
Do everything in your power
to make yourself worthy of the Eucharist,
and this Divine Fire will take care of the rest."

St. Hyacinth of Mariscotti

In continued, concerted prayer in NATIONAL VOCATION AWARENESS WEEK: 

Parents Prayer for Vocations   (Mrs. Dorothy Foss)
Gracious and loving God you have blessed us with the privilege of becoming parents. We ask that you provide us with all that we need in accepting this awesome responsibility. We pray that we will be open to your spirit who is our source of strength as we witness to our children your love for each of them and your desire for them to be happy and to live a full life.

We ask your help so we may guide and encourage our children to believe that they each have a special calling and to use their gifts and talents for others.
We pray, Heavenly Father,that our children will discover and respond enthusiastically to your desire for them whether it be to the vocation of single, married, ordained or consecrated life.

We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus through the grace of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
