May 3, 2020 World Day of Vocations

"Every vocation is born of that gaze of love with which the Lord came to meet us, perhaps even at a time when our boat was being battered by the storm. “Vocation, more than our own choice, is a response to the Lord’s unmerited call” (Letter to Priests, 4 August 2019). We will succeed in discovering and embracing our vocation once we open our hearts in gratitude and perceive the passage of God in our lives." (Pope Francis)

Words of Vocation, Pope Francis

Dear friends, on this day in particular, but also in the ordinary pastoral life of our communities, I ask the Church to continue to promote vocations. May she touch the hearts of the faithful and enable each of them

  • to discover with gratitude God’s call in their lives,
  • to find courage to say “yes” to God,
  • to overcome all weariness through faith in Christ, and
  • to make of their lives a song of praise for God, for their brothers and sisters, and for the whole world.
