Vocational Prayer Request


Yesterday, I went to the National Shrine of the Infant of Prague. It's located in Prague, OK. Very nice little chapel. I gave my vocation to the infant, and said a short prayer to St. Anthony, my patron, to help me discern my vocation. I thought it was appropriate because St. Anthony held the child Jesus. I went to the gift shop and found St. Anthony medals. I have been looking for a new St. Anthony medal ever since I got here. So, I consider it a small signal grace to find one. I bought two. Now, all I need to complete my chaplet is some rosary hardware, namely, some chain, jump rings and those little bead eyelets that link the beads together, and I'll be set!

Anyway, my prayer request is this.: I'll be in Conception Abbey in Conception, MO for a come and see retreat. The place is run by the Benedictines. I have no intention of becoming one, but I was impressed with a glimpse of monastic life while I was there. Anyway, if you could offer some prayers for vocational discernment and for the safety of those of us who are going. Young men from all over Oklahoma are going to this thing, so please keep us in your prayers.

That means I won't be able to blog next Sunday. So, I'm warning you ahead of time.
