World Day of Prayer for Vocations

Pope Francis has recently reminded us that the universal call to holiness is the everlasting project of all Christians. And so let us utilize April 22nd, World Day of Prayer for Vocations, to assist those being called to a particular expression of holiness: priesthood and religious life. Prayer for Vocations must become a disposition that grows into invitation. And that same prayer will help us know who to invite. And because of prayer those we will invite will be open to say yes!

So, please focus your prayer on April 22nd for the intention that men and women around the world will accept the invitation of God’s call to priesthood and religious life. Who knows, they may hear that call through us and because of our prayer for them. Their call is their path to holiness. And we all want to become holy, don’t we?
