A Prayer with St. John Neumann
St. John Neumann,
You were once a layman:
help those in the priesthood of the laity
to respond gladly to God’s call to holiness.
You were once a seminarian:
help our young men and women
to answer God’s call for service in the Church.
You were once a catechist:
help those in the teaching ministry
to burn with the divine Word that they proclaim.
You were once a diocesan priest:
help all of our priests
To serve in vowed commitment to the Lord.
You were once a member of a religious order:
help all of our religious
to walk faithfully in the footsteps of their founders.
You were once a bishop:
help the leaders of our Church
to shepherd us in building God’s kingdom today.
St. John Neumann, help us all. Amen.
