“The higher we go,

the more we can hear the voice of Christ”

– Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati


Prayer for the Courage to be Great

Heavenly Father,

Give me the courage to strive for the highest goals,

to flee every temptation to be mediocre.

Enable me to aspire to greatness, as Pier Giorgio did,

and to open my heart with joy to Your call to holiness.

I want to be, Lord firmly and forever united to You.

Grant me the graces I ask You through Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati’s intercession,

By the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.


Prayer to Know My Vocation

Lord, I want to be happy in this life
and spend eternity with You in the life to come.

 From the first moment of my existence,

You knew my vocation.

Please help me discover Your plan for my life.

 Help me to know myself.

Help me to overcome my fears.

Help me to want what You want.

Help me to trust You completely.

 Send Your Holy Spirit into my mind and heart

so I can see the gifts You have given me

and hear Your call to serve the Church.

Increase my desire to bring others to You

and to help them reach heaven.

 Mary Most Holy, Mother of God,

pray for me, that I can discover my vocation

and have the courage to respond in faith.
