Today, the Fourth Sunday of Easter, is called Good Shepherd Sunday and today is also the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.
Today, the Church calls us to reflect on the meaning of God’s call for each of us and to pray for vocations to the priesthood, the diaconate, and the consecrated life, because the entire Christian community shares the responsibility for fostering vocations. Both the Old and New Testaments use the image of a Shepherd and His flock to describe the unique relationship of God with Israel and Christ with Christians.
The Vocations Office of the Archdiocese has released a new online publication to help promote Vocations to the priesthood and the religious life. It is called “Cardiff Vocations” and has interviews and articles that look at the life of priests and religious within the diocese.
From reflections on life in ministry and seminary life to answering fundamental questions that arise from those discerning a possible vocation this new publication in the life of the diocese offers a resource for those questioning their path in life. Produced by Fr. Nicholas Williams, the Diocesan Vocations Director the magazine is available for download here.
