 Our Calling

“The harvest is great but the labourers are few.” When we look at the world we live in we mainly see problems. When Jesus looks at the same world he sees possibilities. When we think of labourers we think mainly of priests/religious. When Jesus thinks of labourers he thinks of people who live by love. And there are potentially very many of those kinds of people among us. There are wonderful people in every community who give themselves quietly in the service of others week in week out. There are many parents who work hard at handing on the gift of faith to their children. Are you among those? There are married couples who treasure their marriage as a vocation and work hard at developing their marriage as a light for the world. How do you see your vocation? What are you willing to put into it?

 Morning Prayer, when together

Almighty God, our hope and our strength,

without you we falter in our sacrament of marriage.

Help us to follow Christ and to live according to your will.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen


During the day, when apart.

Lord God, in our married love for one another

you give the world a sign of your love.

Renew our strength

and bring us health of mind and body.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen


Evening/Night Prayer together.

Lord, may the love we share in our marriage

accomplish in your Church

the unity and peace it signifies.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen


Questions for Action for the week.

For your marriage: How could you heighten your sense of romance

with each other this week?


For others: Think of some group that is working for vocations to priesthood and religious life. How could you encourage them this week?
