Vocations Sunday

Ask Jesus what He wants and be brave, Pope tells youth

Just after ordaining 10 men to the priesthood, Pope Francis called on young Catholics in St. Peter's Square to "Ask Jesus what He wants from you and be brave!" Catholic News Service has a story:

"There are many young people today, here in the square. Let me ask this: have you sometimes heard the voice of the Lord through a desire, restlessness, inviting you to follow Him more closely? Have you had any desire to be apostles of Jesus?"

He urged the youth present in the square for the April 21 recital of the Regina Caeli to strive for high ideals. It was Good Shepherd Sunday, the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Pope Francis also encouraged people to pray for those who are discerning their vocation and wondering what God's will is for their lives.
