Two New Vocation Blogs

The following note was posted by my friend Mark of Rise and Pray. Please do visit these new websites and pray for vocations.

I have recently had the pleasure to co-operate on two new Vocations 'blogs'. Although they use the blog format, they are designed to be resources websites.

The first is a general resource for promoting vocations to Traditional Societies in union with Pope Benedict XVI:

The second is a resource specifically to encourage vocations for the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter from Scotland and Ireland:

I would encourage you all to give us feedback on both these blogs, particularly if there is content you can think of to be added. Please pass these links far and wide too, because it is fitting -- following Pope Benedict's "derestriction" of the Traditional form of the Roman Rite -- to encourage vocations to Traditional Priestly societies.

Prayer For The Choice of a State of Life
(Indulgence, 300 days, once a day, St. Pius X, May 6, 1905)

O my God, Thou who art the God of wisdom and of counsel, Thou who readest in my heart the sincere will to please Thee alone, and to govern myself with regard to my choice of a state of life, entirely in conformity with Thy most holy desire; grant me, by the intercession of the most blessed Virgin, my Mother, and of my holy patrons, especially of St. Joseph and St. Aloysius, the grace to know what state I ought to choose, and when to embrace it, so that in it I may be able to pursue and increase Thy glory, work out my salvation, and merit that heavenly reward which Thou hast promised to those who do Thy holy Will. Amen

Dear Matthew,

A happy and blessed Easter to you! I hope everything is going well. You're always in my prayers!

Please kindly keep two of my friends in your prayers as they discern vocations to the priesthood; their names are Kevin and Greg. Thank you! It's so wonderful and exciting to know men who are at least willing to consider becoming priests! Maybe the tide is turning...

As for me, I was admitted to the OP on the Sunday before Palm Sunday, so I'm officially a Lay Dominican now. I'm starting my year as a novice. So, please pray for me too! :)

God be with you,
