Prayer for Vocations – O Jesus, Divine Shepherd

O Jesus, Divine Shepherd of souls,
and Lord of the harvest,
You called the Apostles to be fishers of men.
Move now the ardent and generous hearts of your youth
and make them your followers and ministers.
Let them share your thirst of universal redemption
for which You renew your sacrifice on the altar every day.

Extend, O Lord,
Your loving call to many pure and generous souls,
that they may grow in their desire for evangelical perfection
and may dedicate themselves to the service of the Church
and to those who desperately need their assistance and love.

Amen.

(Pope Paul VI)
