The Carmelite Prayer Partner program was instituted so that
the Lay Carmelite Communities in the St. Elias Province could
pray for Student Friars.
Each community was given a "Little Brother" to pray for as he
studies and journeys on his was in the Carmelite spirituality.
Student Friars are in the midst of Formation and are very busy
attending school, studying Carmelite spirituality and learning
the Carmelite way of life.

Lay Carmelite Community. While with us he discerned a
vocation to the Marians of the Immaculate Heart of
Mary in Stockbridge MA.

A PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
Lord Jesus, you have chosen your priests, John and Peter, from among us and sent them out to proclaim your word and act in your name. For so great a gift to your church, we give you praise and thanksgiving. We ask you to fill them with the fire of your love, that their ministry may reveal your presence in the Church. Since they are earthen vessels, we pray that your power shine out through their weakness. In their afflictions let them never be crushed; in their doubts never despair; in temptation never be destroyed; in persecution never abandoned. Inspire them through prayer to live each day in the mystery of your dying and rising. In times of weakness send them your spirit, and help them to praise your heavenly Father and pray for poor sinners. By the same Holy Spirit put your words on their lips and your love in their hearts,to bring good news to the poor and healing to the brokenhearted. And may the gift of Mary your mother, to the disciple whom you loved, be your gift to every priest. Grant that she who formed you in her human image, may form them in your divine image, by the power of your Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.
