Day of Prayer for Vocations

Day of Prayer for Vocations

Certainly all the baptized have the calling to universal holiness.  So few are called to minister as priests/deacons and some are called to minister as a member of a religious community of brothers and sisters.  The Good Shepherd reaches out through these two groups of persons.  The ordained, most especially through the gift of preaching and leading in the celebration of the sacraments; they also reach out to the faithful in many other ways.  Members of religious communities especially bear witness to the special charisms of their respective founders and minister in various areas such as teaching, care for the sick, social activities and contemplative prayer.  We pray that the youth and middle aged will seriously and prayerfully consider such a vocation; think positively of priests, deacons, sisters and brothers, and we should encourage the youth to consider such a vocation in life.
