Admitted to Candidacy for Holy Orders
“When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.” – Luke 9:51 [ESV]
“Lord, hear our prayers for your sons who wish to dedicate themselves to your service and the service of your people in the sacred ministry. Bless them + in your fatherly love, that they may persevere in their vocation, and through their loving fidelity to Christ the Priest be worthy to carry out the Church’s apostolic mission.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.” – Bishop’s prayer over those being admitted to Candidacy
A post about my thoughts about being admitted to Candidacy coming later today or tomorrow.
