Sunday, 11th May, is Good Shepherd Sunday and World Day of Prayer for Vocations
Pope Francis recently said “No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people.”
Each priest is a shepherd. He serves people by explaining the Scriptures and administering the sacraments. The core of his work is to lead others to Christ.
Jesus said “The harvest is great but the labourers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send labourers into His harvest” (Matt 9:37-38).
