How Can I Help... Praying  
Prayer to Our Lady of Good Council
 

O Holy Virgin, to whose feet we are lead by our anxious uncertainty in our search for and attainment of what is true and good, invoking thee by the sweet title of Mother of Good Counsel we beseech thee to come to our assistance, when, along the road of this life, the darkness of error and evil conspire towards our ruin by leading our minds and our hearts astray.

Do thou, O Seat of Wisdom and Star of the Sea, Enlighten the doubtful and erring, that they be not seduced by the false appearance of good; render them steadfast in the face of the hostile and corrupting influences of passion and sin.

O Mother of Good Counsel, obtain for us from thy Divine Son a great love of virtue, and, in the hour of uncertainty and trial, the strength to embrace the way that leads to our salvation. If the had sustains us, we shall walk unmolested along the path indicated to us by the life and words of Jesus our redeemer; and having followed freely and securely, even in the midst of this worlds strife, the Sun of Truth and Justice under Thy maternal star, we shall come to the enjoyment of full and eternal peace with Thee in the haven of salvation.

Amen

 

Prayer to Mary Theresa Ledóchowska

O God, who called blessed
Mary Theresa, Virgin, from the court of princes so that she might live solely for Christ and His body the Church,
grant through her intercession
that all our life be filled with your love
and spent in the service of our
brothers and sisters.
Through Christ Our Lord.
Amen.

   
Prayer to St Peter Claver

Lord, for love of you St. Peter Claver
became the faithful servant of slaves.
Through his prayer help us to see the true dignity
of the human family, all children of one father
and to spend ourselves for their salvation.
We ask this through Our lord Jesus Christ,
your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
Amen.

 

   
Prayer for Vocations

Lord make me a better person,
More considerate towards others,
More honest with myself,
More faithful to you.
Help me to find my true vocation in life,
and grant that through it,
I may find happiness myself and bring happiness to others.

 

Grant that those whom you call to enter
the priesthood or the Religious Life
may have the generosity to answer your call,
so that those who need your help may always find it.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
