During this liturgical season of Lent our Blog will be reflecting on our Pope Benedict XVI’s Message for Lent 2011 in relationship to the vocations of priesthood and consecrated life, discernment, etc. We would like to invite you to join us on our Blog and/or For Your Vocation Facebook page to take advantage of these reflections during your Lenten pilgrimage. One of the predominant themes in the Holy Father’s message is the importance of the Sacrament of Baptism and how it immerses us into relationship with Jesus Christ. Baptism is where the call of Father is received, and this call is nourished by frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance and the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist. We hope you will find encouragement during Lent to pray for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life, and if you think the Lord is calling you to either of these vocations, to take generous steps in responding to God’s call.
See the Holy Father’s message given at his Wednesday audience earlier today too!
