Loving God, you have given the Church, your body on earth,
the task to continue your son’s work of proclaiming the Good News,
healing the sick, restoring dignity to the disenfranchised and dispossessed.
We pray for those whose calling takes them to the streets and lanes,
the prisons and refugee camps, into rural parishes, urban centres, and into the cloister:
help us each to hear your call to us, and give us the courage to follow where you lead the way.
