Prayer for Vocations
We celebrate your fidelity and love for your Church. You bless us and call us into a covenant with you, with Jesus, and with the Holy Spirit. Mary accepted this covenant, offering herself as your blessed handmaid. You entrusted her with your Son, Jesus, and in turn she became our mother too. Like Jesus and Mary, bless us with a trusting spirit that we might serve you faithfully. Inspire men and women to dedicate their lives to you through the consecrated life. Help us to invite, encourage and support men and women to serve the Church. Blessed are we as we seek to live our lives in holiness and integrity. We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus and his Blessed Mother in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Letter from Bishop Farrell Concerning the Bishop’s Annual Appeal
My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Daily, the Diocese of Dallas embraces more than 1.3 million Catholics who call this diocese their spiritual home. ‘We are, ultimately, one body in Christ. On the night of the last supper, as Christ looked forward to his suffering on the cross, so too do we, each Sunday, in the celebration of the Eucharist, look back to that saving event where our Lord secured our redemption. Although our salvation was secured in his physical body, our Lord’s suffering continues in the members of his mystical body, the Church. Each of us stands at the foot of the cross when one of our brothers and sisters in faith lacks the spiritual or physical necessities that are necessary for a joyful and productive life. Understanding the profound bond that connects each of us in our family of faith throughout the Diocese of Dallas, we are called upon, with one heart and mind, to continue and sustain the healing, teaching, and redemptive mission of our Church. Your support of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries ensures that the hungry will be fed, those who are troubled will be comforted, and those who seek the presence of the Lord will be spiritually nourished. I would ask each of you, in the coming weeks, to think upon the many blessings that God has given you and to open your hearts in support of this critical annual appeal.
I remain, yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Kevin J. Farrell, D.D.
Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas
