Seek the Lord - November

All God-given vocations are important. That is why God gives them! Our archdiocesan Prayer for Vocations specifically mentions the vocational call to a chaste single life “and faithful husbands and wives, who are a sign of Christ’s love for His Church.” The Vocations page on our archdiocesan website (catholiccincinnati.org/ministries-offices/vocations/) also reflects this broad understanding of the word “vocations.”

If you are young enough, you have been hearing the phrases “priest shortage” and “vocation crisis” your entire life. The problem is real, it is continuing and it is worldwide. The people of God need priests and deacons . . .
