Vocations Crucifix Program
"The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest." -Luke 10:2
Prayer Changes Everything!
What would we do without our priests? No priests, no Eucharist. No priests, no absolution of sins. No priests, no anointing of the sick, and on and on and on. Sounds extreme, but if you look at the current situation, we are facing a priest shortage. This reality is painfully apparent as many parishes (not just St. André Bessette) face church closings and twinning of churches because of the lack of priests. The day may be near when some parishes will only have communion services since there are no priests available to celebrate Mass. The harvest is definitely abundant; but, our priests are getting older and fewer, making it our duty to pray for vocations and to support the priests we currently are blessed to have. Ask any priest about their discernment process and their subsequent priesthood and they will confirm that prayers and encouragement from others were and still remain invaluable. Fervent, consistent prayer is powerful and can bring about seemingly impossible change. Let us offer up our prayers for the Master to call more laborers to His harvest and may these people be open to hearing His call in their lives.
