Year for Consecrated Life
Pope Francis has declared a Year for Consecrated Life which began with the start of the new liturgical year on November 30th.  
Please pray the Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life, below, and as a special intention, please pray for more vocations to consecrated life and remember and give thanks for the gift of our sisters, brothers, religious priests and others who are living a consecrated life. 
Please share the prayer with others...

for the
Year of Consecrated Life
O God, throughout the ages
you have called women and men
to pursue lives of perfect charity
through the evangelical counsels of
poverty, chastity, and obedience.
During this Year of Consecrated Life,
we give you thanks
for these courageous witnesses of Faith
and models of inspiration.
Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make
a more perfect offering of ourselves to you.
Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth
sons and daughters who,
having found the pearl of great price,
treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the
unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
