Papal Message

Benedict XVI is urging Catholics to pray for vocations with the confidence that God never ceases to call, and that he will give the graces for a generous response.

“The exhortation of Jesus to his disciples: “Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38) has a constant resonance in the Church. Pray! The urgent call of the Lord stresses that prayer for vocations should be continuous and trusting. The Christian community can only really “have ever greater faith and hope in God’s providence” (Sacramentum Caritatis, 26) if it is enlivened by prayer.”

“We must pray that the whole Christian people grows in its trust in God, convinced that the “Lord of the harvest” does not cease to ask some to place their entire existence freely at his service so as to work with him more closely in the mission of salvation.”

“Do not be discouraged in the face of difficulties and doubts; trust in God and follow Jesus faithfully and you will witness the joy that flows from intimate union with him.Imitating the Virgin Mary whom all generations proclaim as blessed because she believed(cf.Lk 1:48), commit yourself with spiritual energy, to realise the Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation, cultivating in your heart, like her, the ability to be astonished and to adore him who is mighty and does “great things”, for his Holy name (cf.Lk1:49)”.
