Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   Next Sunday is Vocations Sunday and on the 4th Sunday of Easter last year Pope Francis had this to say:  “Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone:  a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father or a community.   Vocations are born in prayer and from prayer, and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit.”

God bless you all.
