It began with the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord – “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power” (Acts 10:38).
We believe that each of us receives the gift of the Holy Spirit at our baptism, and we are called to live this out according to His plan for each of us. Let us remember to pray for men and women in our diocese who are discerning their vocation and encourage them to pursue God’s personal call.
As a family or an individual you may want to consider sending a card to a priest or consecrated person this week, thanking them for the gift of themselves given to Christ and to His body, the Church, or invite them to your home for dinner.
Pray for more vocations to priesthood and consecrated life – and consider a vocation to priesthood or consecrated life!
