During these days each year we are invited to take time to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. We also remember the many ways that members of the wider Oblate family live their vocations of service and building community together.
As we strive to live with the reality of the corona virus we have seen how many people are living their vocations and witnessing to values such as a commitment and dedication to the others, compassion, sympathy and demonstrating a real love for one another.
Pope Francis in his homily for World Youth Day in April said: “Dear friends, look at the real heroes who come to light in these days: they are not famous, rich and successful people; rather, they are those who are giving themselves in order to serve others. Feel called yourselves to put your lives on the line. Do not be afraid to devote your life to God and to others; it pays! For life is a gift we receive only when we give ourselves away, and our deepest joy comes from saying yes to love, without ifs and buts. To truly say yes to love, without ifs and buts. As Jesus did for us.”
In preparing for this year’s novena, Fr Dominick writes that there is a “great and urgent need for the new vocations to the priesthood and religious life and we are also convinced that the Lord will provide his servants from the communities and families which are truly following the great example of our Saviour.”
So this year you are invited to join the prayer for vocations online on Facebook and on Youtube. Please click “like” or “follow” on our facebook page and “subscribe” to our channel on youtube to receive notifications from us.
From the 21st to the 29th of May we will stream our short vocation videos at 2.00 p.m. Let us also make the Pope’s invitation a prayer…
