Redemptorist to be ordained transitional deacon

Please join us in praying for James McCabe, C.Ss.R., who will be ordained a transitional deacon Saturday during a 10 a.m. Mass in the Crypt Chapel of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

McCabe will be ordained alongside three other religious order seminarians. He professed his final vows as a Redemptorist in July, and is scheduled to be ordained to the priesthood in May 2011.

Would you also join us in praying for the other 11 young men who are studying to become Redemptorist priests and brothers, and for future vocations?

Send forth your Spirit, Lord, into the hearts of your faithful people, that we may be conscious of our vocations to holiness and service to others. Grant that many of us may dedicate ourselves to You through the priesthood, religious life, and lay ministries.

We pray, too, for religious, and especially for the Redemptorists; that generous men may join them to become zealous missionaries in preaching the gospel in word and action, especially to the poor and most abandoned.

We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
