Prayer for our Religious Brothers and Sisters

Heavenly Father

You called one by one, your little sons and daughters to take up the mission of evangelization, prayer, and sacrifice for the entire flock of New York. They have freely given themselves to You in service of those in need. They have taken up their crosses and carried them in Your Name faithfully as their founders done in ages past. Today, the message they proclaim in their lives continues to be like a tree, which bears good fruit. You harvest from them these gifts they present to You by the very work of their own hands. Lord, grant to them new graces to continue on in the mission of building Your Kingdom for the glory of Your Name. May their lives be an example of Your Son Jesus, as He suffered and died for us, may their lives be a continual sacrifice in His Name. Oh Heavenly Father, may they inspire the youth of parish, to pick up the cross and follow Your Son Jesus Christ, through the example of their holiness. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
