On August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, our Passionist Family gathered to gratefully witness the First Profession of Passionist Vows by our newest brother, Nicholas Divine. Our Provincial, Fr. Joe Moons, CP, received Nicholas’ vows.
Nicholas has now journeyed to our St. Vincent Strambi Community in Chicago to continue his seminary studies for priestly ordination at Catholic Theological Union.
When the video is finished, please scroll down to pray for Passionist Vocations and Religious Vocations throughout the world.
Prayer for Passionist Vocations
By: Fr. Randal Joyce, CP
Father, with hearts grateful for the past,
and looking to the future with trust in your providence
we pray for the needs of our Passionist Congregation.
With special urgency we pray for more companions.
May our lives and our places be lighthouses for others,
showing the way, glowing with welcome.
By Your Spirit within us may we be magnets of grace,
drawing others to join us in community.
We pray with Mary, the first Passionist,
we pray with St. Paul of the Cross
and all our Passionist saints.
We pray most of all in the name of Jesus, crucified and risen.
