Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life

Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life

O God, throughout the ages you have called

women and men to pursue lives of perfect

charity through the evangelical counsels of

poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this

Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks

for these courageous witnesses of Faith and

models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy

lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering

of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich

your Church by calling forth sons and daughters

who, having found the pearl of great

price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above

all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ,

your Son, who lives and reigns with you in

the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for

ever and ever. Amen
