“My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me.” (John 10:27-30)
On this World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Sunday’s Gospel presents to us one of the deepest mysteries of the human spirit: Faith. We follow Jesus because we believe He is the Son of God, that He is the Good Shepherd. The image of the shepherd conveys to us that Jesus cares for His flock and safeguards it from harm. In return, the flock is loyal or faithful to the shepherd. The sheep trust the shepherd.
We know Jesus loves us and wants us to know eternal life with God. Are we listening to His voice? Are we answering His call?
Thanks, Laura. And thanks for what you are doing at UWGB!
God bless all discerning a vocation to religious life and God bless all Vocation Directors!
Thanks for the reminder that's it's the World Day of Prayer for vocations! I pray every day for our diocesan seminarians, and write to each of them once during the year, but lots of people praying together on the same day is powerful.
thanks Sister Laura for your questions. The key words listening & answering is something I need to reflect on.
Thanks, Laura, for your pointed questions. A good examen.
