Prayer of the week

O Jesus, You who invited the righteous St Charbel [Makhlouf] to join the monastic life, rooting his faith among his Christian family in his village of Bekaa Kafra, north Lebanon, give us through his intercession families reanimated by the faith, the domestic virtues and parental example so that they become a source of real Christian vocations. Amen.
