Pray fervently to make the right choice of the single, married or ‘religious’ life.

If you have already entered into your life’s vocation help your brothers and sisters, your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and students learn the following prayer so that they may obtain the graces of ‘enlightenment’ and enter into the vocation that is in conformation with God’s will and perfect plans.

On it depends the happiness of your own soul and other souls in this life and for all eternity.

Behold me at thy feet, O Virgin most kind,
seeking to obtain through thee, the most important grace of knowing what I ought to do.

I desire nothing but to comply perfectly with the Will of thy Divine Son at every moment of my life.

Mother of Good Counsel, let me hear thy voice.

It will dispel every doubt that troubles my mind.

I trust in thee, being confident that, since thou art the Mother of the Redeemer, thou wilt also be the Mother of my salvation.

If thou O Mary, wilt not send me a ray of the Divine Sun, what light will enlighten me?

Who will direct me if thou refuses, who art the Mother of the uncreated Wisdom?

Listen, then, to my humble prayers.

Let me not be lost in my uncertainty and instability;
lead me along the straight road that ends in life everlasting,
Thou, who art my only hope, and whose hands are full of the riches of virtue and of life, and who dispenses the fruits of honor and holiness.


Let Us Pray! (Oremus!)

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
and sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother,
to thee I come,
before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate!
despise not my petitions,
but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me.


St. Bernard, pray for us!
Dear Jesus, Thank You for all the grace Thou hast provided to Saint Bernard.
