22 APRIL - Mark your calendar this April 26: this is the Day of Professionals.
Announced by the Diocesan Family and Life Ministry, prayers will be offered for our professionals who have helped us in areas where we need professional help. The Panalangin para sa mga Propesyonal is given by the ministry to be recited in all masses this April 26. The prayer goes this way:
"O Lord, we pray for all professionals: doctors, lawyers, teachers, caregivers, engineers, architects, and all those trained to be of service to your people in various fields of human need and undertaking. They have undergone long years of study and education to perfect the skills you gave them. Thank you for all those years, particularly for the talent you have shared to us through them.
Help them realize that all their gifts are given for the good of the whole human race in the spirit of stewardship in Jesus' name. May they utilize their talents that others may see in them the reflection of your infinite perfection. May they be drawn to the wellspring of life that only you can give.
With the help of Mary our Mother, we ask you this in the name of your beloverd Son in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
