E-mail Print PDF

The Church will mark the 53rd World Day of Prayer for Vocations on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 17, 2016. The Holy Father has released a Message on "The Church, Mother of Vocations", which is available on the Vatican website. In his Message, Pope Francis expresses his hope that, "...during the course of this Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, all the baptized may experience the joy of belonging to the Church and rediscover that the Christian vocation, just like every particular vocation, is born from within the People of God, and is a gift of divine mercy. The Church is the house of mercy, and it is the 'soil' where vocations take root, mature and bear fruit."
