Prayer For Vocations
Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world! We humbly beg of Thee to manifest in Thy Church the Spirit Whom Thou didst so abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles. Call, we pray Thee, very many to Thy priesthood and to the religious life. And may zeal for Thy glory and the salvation of souls inflame those whom Thou hast chosen; may they be saints in Thy likeness, and may Thy Spirit strengthen them. O Jesus, give us priests and religious according to Thine own Heart!
O Mary, Mother of Jesus! Obtain for fervent souls the grace to hear, and the courage to follow, thy Divine Son in the path of religious perfection.
Queen of Apostles, pray for us.
Queen of Virgins, pray for us.

As Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration our essence is a common life of contemplative prayer grounded in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Being conformed to our Divine Spouse through this life of intimate prayer, we then give joyful witness to Him to the world outside the monastery through appropriate evangelical apostolic activities.

A Good Habit
"The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."

A vocation is a gift from beginning to end—a call to rise above the things of this world and prove by a living witness that there is something more and better to come. Those who have been called to this witnessing role are not deprived of love, comfort or joy. They merely find these gifts on a more spiritual and lasting level. Their personalities are not destroyed in some sacrificial act of piety, but developed and made beautiful by the grace of God constantly being poured into their emptying vessels.
