12 new deacons; adopt one in your prayer!

On 6 April, twelve young Jesuits from the Collegio Intenazionale del Gesù in Rome will be ordained deacons. This step is a transition from a long and intense spiritual and intellectual formation in the Society to a new form of service as deacons and later as priests. Their vocations were nourished and shaped by the prayers of many friends, both known and unknown, who accompanied them on this journey to which Christ had called them. On the eve of their ordination to the diaconate, they once again ask for the support of our prayer.

An idea popped into mind: why don’t you choose to pray specifically for one of them? You could choose, for example, the one whose birthday is closest to yours...

I ask you to pray so that I never forget that the deacon is the one that serves. Also for our families, since they can’t be with us due to the pandemic.
