Prayer for Consecrated Persons
God our Father, we thank you for calling
men and women to serve in your Son’s
Kingdom as sisters, brothers, religious priests,
consecrated virgins, and hermits, as well as
members of Secular Institutes. Renew their
knowledge and love of you, and send your
Holy Spirit to help them respond generously

through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and
reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.
