“Ask yourselves, young people, about the love of Christ. Acknowledge His voice resounding in the temple of your heart. Return His bright and penetrating glance which opens the paths of your life to the horizons of the Church’s mission. It is a taxing mission, today more than ever, to teach men the truth about themselves, about their end, their destiny, and to show faithful souls the unspeakable riches of the love of Christ. Do not be afraid of the radicalness of His demands, because Jesus, who loved us first, is prepared to give Himself to you, as well as asking of you. If He asks much of you, it is because He knows you can give much.” ― Saint

This week, sincerely ask Jesus to help you live better your own life’s vocation. Below are a few website resources to help you enrich your own vocation and also to help and pray for those seeking to answer God's call to fulfilment by discerning particular vocations of service in the Church.
