A Prayer for Our Times

On this feast day of St. Jerome Emilian (d. 1537), let us pray the prayer he taught to the little orphans he loved and cared for so well, a prayer most appropriate for our times:

"Lord Jesus Christ, our loving Father, we beseech Thee, by Thine infinite goodness, raise up Christendom once more, and bring it back to that upright holiness which flourished in the apostolic age."

Amen! St. Jerome Emilian, pray for us!

From Whence Vocations, specifically ...

LaSalette Boys Academy.  

21 graduates...16 of them going to the seminary in 2015.  I don't think St. John Bosco could say much against that percentage!

Where vocations are, there the Church flourishes.
