The Church will mark the 55th World Day of Prayer for Vocations on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, 22 April 2018. The Holy Father has released a Message entitled "Listening, discerning and living", which is available on the Vatican website. Pope Francis refers to three aspects of a vocation: "In the diversity and the uniqueness of each and every vocation, personal and ecclesial, there is a need to listen, discern and live this Word that calls to us from on high and, while enabling us to develop our talents, makes us instruments of salvation in the world and guides us to full happiness." The Message is also linked with the upcoming Synod of Bishops that will take place on October 2018 on the theme Young People, The Faith and Vocational Discernment.
