In words which sound as strong today as when they were written, St. Vincent expressed his conviction of priesthood:
I would like to be food for the hungry’ clothing for the naked, drink for the thirsty, strength for the weak, healing refreshment for the exhausted; medicine and health for the sick, for the lame, the maimed, the deaf and the dump; light for spiritual and physical blindness; a life for those who are dead to God’s grace.

Prayer for Vocations
Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world! We humbly beg of You to manifest in Your Church the Spirit whom You did so abundantly bestow upon Your Apostles. Call, we pray You, very many to Your priesthood and to the religious life. And may zeal for Your glory and the salvation of souls inflame those whom You have chosen; may they be saints in Your likeness, and may Your Spirit strengthen them. O Jesus, give us priests and religious according to Your own Heart! O Mary, Mother of Jesus! Obtain for fervent souls the grace to hear and the courage to follow your Divine Son in the path of religious perfection. Queen of Apostles, pray for us. Queen of Virgins, pray for us.
