In his message for World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis hopes that in this Year 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.” This week the Prairie Messenger celebrates vocations to the religious life.
