People are often unreasonable,
If you are kind, people may accuse you
If you are successful, you will win some
If you are honest and frank,
What you spend years building
If you find serenity and happiness,
The good you do today
Give the world the best you have,
You see, in the final analysis
For our Priests and Vocations
you are our eternal shepherd and guide.
In your mercy grant your Church shepherds
who will walk in your ways and whose watchful care will brings us your blessing.
We ask this through Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.
I will raise up for myself a faithful priest; he will do what is in my heart and in my mind, says the Lord.
1 Sm 2:35
