A PRAYER for WOMEN'S ORDINATION on the FEAST of the ANNUNCIATION
God of the Universe, long ago you spoke through an angel to your servant, Mary, who opened her entire being in response to your creative Word. In the gift of that Word, she carried Christ in her womb and into the world. Today you are speaking through your Spirit to the hearts of women around the world, inviting them to be Christ bearers to serve in the Sacramental Priesthood of the Church. They have heard you; and, like Mary, they hunger to respond with their entire being. Give courage and freedom to them and to the citizens of your church, both women and men, to open and embrace the sacred space that will make their priesthood a living reality in today's world, which waits in need of the gifts they are called to bring to your table. Amen.
