God of Vocations, when Saint Euphrasia was a little girl, she lived near a convent and became fascinated by the nuns. She pleaded with her mother for permission to move into the convent, and was handed over to the tutelage of the abbess. Later, she became a nun and joyfully spent the rest of her life as Your servant. I ask Saint Euphrasia to pray for all the boys and girls who are being called to join Religious orders, especially those in my family. Lord God, protect them from the world’s distractions. Place into their lives faithful Religious who will inspire them to follow the same path. Saint Euphrasia, pray for us. Amen.

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
Show me your hands. Do they have scars from giving? Show me your feet. Are they wounded in service? Show me your heart. Have you left a place for divine love?”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
