Ave Maria Meditations
As we celebrate this occasion, the Church invites us to honor the vocation of all Christians given at baptism. May we who have dedicated our lives to God through the vocation of marriage, priesthood, diaconate, consecrated life, and the single life continue to follow Jesus who has called us by name. May those who are discerning their life vocation listen to the grace of God to guide them.
“The Church prays everyday to the Holy Spirit for the gift of vocations. Gathered around the Virgin Mary, Queen of Apostles, as in the beginning, the ecc1esial community learns from her how to implore the Lord for a flowering of new apostles, alive with the faith and love that are necessary for the mission.”
Pope Benedict XVI
