Prayer of Suffering for Vocations
Lord Jesus, you willingly suffered a painful death
for the sake of my salvation.
Today I join my pain with Yours—
my illness, my loneliness, my heartache—
all for the sake of the souls in purgatory,
as well as for an increase in vocations to the priesthood.
Have pity on your servant, Lord,
for to you I lift up my soul.
