Good Shepherd Sunday insights

In honor of yesterday's Good Shepherd Sunday and the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched its new website, ForYourVocation.org. The site offers tips and prayers for men and women discerning a call to the priesthood or religious life, as well as advice and resources for their parents.

As the ForYourVocation.org homepage explains, the U.S. bishops have two goals for the site: to help individuals hear and respond to the call by God to the priesthood or consecrated life and to educate all Catholics on the importance of encouraging others through prayer and activities to promote vocations.

Also Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI encouraged young people to pray to be faithful witnesses to the Gospel. See the video below:
