World Day of Prayer for Vocations (This Sunday)

Just want to give you a heads up that this Sunday (April 17, 2016) is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

World Day of Prayer for Vocations

It is so important to pray for vocations. I am sure we all know that the Church needs more men and women in service to the Lord. As someone who spend a signficant amount of time discerning a religious vocation, I can attest that it is a beautiful and fulfilling life! I may not have had a vocation but I have never regretted my time with the Little Sisters.

And, if you are a parent, please be open to your child having a possible vocation. I was blessed to have parents who supported my decision to discern a vocation. However, during my time with the Little Sisters, I saw so many parents who disapproved (and actively opposed) their daughters’ vocation. This opposition caused a lot of pressure and angst that affected the women’s ability to truly discern God’s plan for them.

For information and prayers for vocations go here and here.
