Vocation_S[1] 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parishioners,

 

 The fourth Sunday of Easter is known as Good Shepherd Sunday and the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. The celebration of Good Shepherd Sunday is an opportunity to pray that the Lord will raise up more people to inspire the Church as priests and consecrated women and men. This is a moment to invite everyone to be involved in the process of changing lives through their prayer for vocations. Coupled with the nurturing atmosphere in their homes, parishes and schools this will enable those who are called to respond to such a vocation. In 1963 Pope Paul VI designated Good Shepherd Sunday as “World Day of Prayer for Vocations”. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, protects us as his flock and promises us the gift of eternal life.

 When a person accepts the call of Christ to be a priest or a religious, their life is changed. But so are the lives of thousands of people who will be touched through their ministry. Lives are changed through the pastoral care of a priest, through the care of a religious sister or brother, through the prayers offered by enclosed nuns and monks. In these ways, a life changed in turn changes many lives. Completing this virtuous circle is the prayer of lay people for vocations to the priesthood and religious life, combined with the encouragement of those they know who are considering such a vocation. This too can change a life.

“My sheep hear my voice,” said Jesus, “and they follow me…”

How are we to follow him if we do not hear his voice and where better to hear his voice, even in these times, than in the company of those who follow him and in the tradition of those who have followed him for some 2,000 years. There is no place where Jesus speaks his faithful love for us more clearly than at the table of the Holy Eucharist. As the Shepherd and the Father are one, so does the Shepherd make himself one with us in the sacrament of the Holy Communion

Let nothing, let no one separate us from the love of Christ and the Holy Eucharist we celebrate, in and through the flock of his body, the Church.

 

With prayers,

Fr.James Kaniparampil CMI
