Daily Prayers for Jesuit Vocations

June 8, 2012 in News

Brian Grogan SJ (ed.)


This is a lovely collection of prayers inspired by the Gospels. Since the prayers are for vocations to the Jesuits, the author Brian Grogan has also drawn on the Roman Missal, the Jesuit Constitutions, General Congregation documents and various Jesuit writings.

The prayers are numbered for the date of the month, so that across the Irish and British Provinces all can pray the same prayer daily. Irish Jesuit Provincial Tom Layden has encouraged all Jesuits and colleagues to pray the prayers daily. Writing in the foreword he says. “Ignatius believed in the power of our solidarity in prayer for the preservation and growth of the Society. It is a great source of blessing when together we pray the same prayers for the same grace”.
