Called to Serve the Master: Fr Lam Vu’s Story


“God asked St Francis: ‘Francis, who do you want to serve? Do you want to serve the master or the servant?’ That one saying stayed with me for a while, and I kept thinking, ‘who am I serving in my life?’”

Fr Lam Vu OFM Cap shares his journey: from fleeing from South Vietnam on his father’s fishing boat, to discovering the call to leave his work as an architect and follow in the footsteps of St Francis.

A Prayer for Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.

Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.

Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church’s needs, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
