Oración por las vocaciones
Jesús, tú que eres el Buen Pastor,
envía a tu Iglesia sacerdotes según tu corazón,
que nos alimenten con tu Cuerpo y con tu Sangre
Diáconos que anuncien tu Evangelio,
y sirvan en la caridad a sus hermanos.
Religiosos y Religiosas
de vida activa y contemplativa,
que sean signos y testigos de tu Reino.
Laicos que, como fermento en el mundo,
Proclamen y construyan tu Reino.
Fortalece a los que has llamado,
ayúdalos a crecer en amor y santidad,
para que respondan plenamente a su vocación.
María, Madre y Reina de las vocaciones
Ruega por nosotros

Momentos Matrimoniales
Es posible que estés demasiado ocupado si no tienes
tiempo para pasar un tiempo especial con tu cónyuge.
Esta noche reserven varias horas que pueden dedicarse
exclusivamente el uno al otro el próximo fin de semana.
Pueda que decida la esposa que van a hacer-la próxima
le toca al esposo.
Pautas Para Padres
“Si ustedes me aman, guardaran mis mandamientos”.
(Juan 14:15) Igual que Dios nos dio mandamientos, las familias saludables tienen reglas para mantener la orden y la
paz. ¿ Cuales son algunas de las reglas de tu familia?
¿Hacen falta algunas nuevas? ¿Se puede prescindir de algunas que ya no sirven? Consúltenlo juntos.
