Today the Holy Father has asked all Catholics to intercede for vocations. Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life?
Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life, both living and dead.
Keep our parish priests and deacons in prayer throughout the week.
Encourage your children or grandchildren to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.
Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to respond to God’s call.
“The Lord’s call is not an intrusion of God in our freedom; it is not a “cage” or a burden to be borne. On the contrary, it is the loving initiative whereby God encounters us and invites us to be part of a great undertaking. He opens before our eyes the horizon of a greater sea and an abundant catch.” Pope Saint Francis
