New Vocations Website
I found this over at Catholic News Agency (CNA). The U.S. bishops are preparing to launch a new website to help clergy and the laity promote vocations. The site is ForYourVocation.org and is scheduled to be up and running on April 25, 2010. This date coincides with the World Day of Prayer For Vocations as well as Good Shepherd Sunday.
You can read more at the CNA site.
In the meantime, let us all continue to pray for those discerning vocations to the priesthood or consecrated religious life.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
