World Day of Prayer for Vocations

Matthew Harrison

Friday, April 11, 2008

This Sunday marks the 45th World Day of Prayer for Vocations. It's an important reminder to always pray for vocations, not just this weekend, but everyday!
In his message for the occasion, Pope Benedict chose the theme “Vocations at the service of the Church on mission.” He writes:
“The Church is missionary in herself and in each one of her members. Through the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, every Christian is called to bear witness and to announce the Gospel.”
... “Christian communities must never fail to provide both children and adults with constant education in the faith. It is necessary to keep alive in the faithful a committed sense of missionary responsibility … This awareness must be nourished by preaching and catechesis, by the liturgy, and by constant formation in prayer. … as well as pastoral planning, of which attention to vocations must be an integral part.”
