41st World Day of

01/05/2004: Vatican

The 41st World Day of Prayer for Vocations will take place on May 2nd. Is it worth the effort to pray for this intention? We all search for our place in life, one that will coincide with the Lord’s dream for each of us. He speaks to each of us in our hearts and in freedom we respond to him. Building the Kingdom of God encompasses many different roles and regions. Some are called to devote their entire lives to serving the Kingdom, especially priests, brothers and sisters, and lay missionaries. In his Message for this Day, the Pope explains:

“On the occasion of the upcoming 41st World Day of Prayer for Vocations, held traditionally on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, all of the faithful join in fervent prayer for vocations to the priesthood, to the consecrated life and to missionary service. Indeed, our primary duty is to pray to the Lord of the harvest for those who already follow Christ very closely in the priesthood and religious life, and for those whom he in his mercy continues to call to such important ecclesial service.”

The life of a Marist brother is one of love and service for young people interested in following Jesus as Mary did. Energized by the charism of St Marcellin, Marists choose to work in the field of education, on a mission giving preference to children and young people in greatest need of care and attention. From Africa to the Pacific Isles, from Asia to Europe to the Americas, children are asking to join this worldwide Marist community. If the Lord is calling you to this way of life, welcome aboard.

So pray to the Lord of the harvest, asking him to send workers into his fields (Lk 10,2).
