Oblate Novena for Vocations: May 24th Day 4 With the Oblate parish of English Martyrs, Tower Hill
Dear friends welcome to the 2023 Novena of prayer for Oblate Vocations. We join our Oblate Parish of English Martyrs in Tower Hill, London for Day Four of our novena on Wednesday May 24th. Thanks to all in Tower Hill for leading us in our prayer today.
The fourth day: VOCATION: THE MISSION
Jesus said: ““Come follow me” …They left everything and followed him…”.
Blessed Joseph Gerard OMI wrote:
I can picture an Oblate of Mary Immaculate in his mission: he wants to see everything with his eyes, know with his heart, give joy to everyone by his presence, be all things to all people to win them over to Jesus Christ…
He is not satisfied with general relationships, where the priest is the priest of everyone, but not enough the priest to each one. He loves in such a way that each one would believe himself or herself to be uniquely loved by him. …We must love our people, love them in spite of everything, love them always. The world belongs to the person who loves it most and proves it.
Holy Father,we come to you because Jesus asked us to pray that you send workers into your harvest. Therefore, send us generous young men, passionate for Jesus,willing to make of their whole life a total oblation to you,to become close to the poorest and most abandoned,
and to proclaim the Gospel.May they burn with the same fire that you enkindled in Saint Eugene;may they come to be part of his familyand, with all the Oblates, may they continue the work of Redemption.Mary Immaculate,Who first gave Jesus to the world, be with us as we pray.
Saint Eugene de Mazenod… Pray for us
Blessed Joseph Gerard… Pray for us
Blessed Joseph Cebula… Pray for us
Blessed Francis Esteban and his Companions… Pray for us
Blessed Oblate Martyrs of Laos …Pray for us
