Heavenly Father, Saint Adele’s first vocation was as a wife and mother. She served You well by taking care of her family, praying, and doing works of mercy. When her husband died, she became a nun and founded a convent. As its first abbess, she ruled with great compassion and holiness. I ask her to pray for women and men who are being called to a religious vocation late in life. O Lord, help them to hear Your call and to put aside the life they have been living. Direct them to join the orders that will best suit their gifts. Inspire their families to give them encouragement and generous support. Saint Adele, pray for us. Amen.
