Pope Francis Observes ‘Good Shepherd’ Sunday: World Day of Prayer for Vocations

May 12, 2019. ‘The Courage to Risk for God’s Promise.’

Pope Francis on May 12, 2019, reminded Catholic around the world that it is World Day of Prayer for Vocations.  His comments came praying the midday Regina Coeli with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square:

Observed today, Fourth Sunday of Easter, “Good Shepherd” Sunday, is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, whose theme this year is: “The Courage to Risk for God’s Promise.” The courage to risk for God’s promise: it’s always a risk to follow Jesus; courage is needed. In all the communities there is prayer, particularly, for vocations to the priesthood and to consecrated life. This morning, in Saint Peter’s Basilica, I had the joy to ordain nineteen new priests. While I greet affectionately these new presbyters, together with their relatives and friends, I invite you to remember all those the Lord continues to call by name, as he did one day with the Apostles on the shore of the Lake of Galilee, so that they become “fishers of men.” Of these nineteen men, I invited two of them to greet you and bless you with me.
