Marist Vocation Year

05/09/2004: General House

On September 8 th , 2004, we will begin an intensive year long and worldwide effort to do just that: promote vocations. Please grace. Like so many of you, I believe that God continues to move the hearts of young people and call them to a variety of vocations within our Church. So let’s pledge to do all that we can to foster their generous response, while concentratine our efforts on those called to our way of life and mission as Little Brothers of Mary…
To all I offer this reminder: personal prayer is most important. So, pray for those who have religious life on their minds. Pray for them daily. Pray for them by name. If writing is your gift put it to good use during this year ahead by writing about our life and mission. And if music, or art, or media is your passion, use it in the service of awakening vocations during the months ahead. Teach about our life if teaching is your talent; encourage vocations if your gift is to motivate people.
Above all, be creative in planning for this year set aside to awaken vocations. Time and again, ask yourself this question: how can I use some of my God given skills to help promote vocations? Give 20 percent of your best time to the effort, and don’t forget to invite.
