“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision…. Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love.”
—Pope Francis, Address to Seminarians and Novices, July 6, 2013
To serve the Church as a priest or a religious is indeed a humbling honor which no one merits but which Our Lord chooses for us. We pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send laborers into His vineyard, and we pray for vocations to serve the Church in the priesthood and the religious life.
