The Gospels present vocation as a marvelous meeting between God and human beings. This is the mystery of being called, the mystery that involves the life of every Christian, but which is manifested with greater clarity in those whom Christ invites to leave everything to follow him more nearly. Christ has always chosen some persons to work together with Him in a more direct manner for the realization of the Father’s plan of salvation. Knowing that there is a great necessity to build a culture of the “call” in our society, the call which is addressed to all baptized people, to be porters of the Good News where they are and where they live, the sisters visited the village Kuru in Jharkhand on February 26, 2018 in order to offer to the still discerning young people the best possible opportunity to consider, ‘Could God be calling me to live out my life as a child of God, my holiness, as a consecrated religious, as a Daughter of the Church?’.
Srs. Jayanthi & Venisha met a group of children who came for their Catechism classes in the parish of St. Vincent Palloti, Kuru and helped children and young people to give value to life as a response to God, and to accept in faith the gift of a personal vocation. Listening to them, clarifying their doubts about religious life and visiting their families were beautiful and enriching moments to help them make a life-choice of total self-gift to God and to other people, infuse ‘in the young hearts a desire to do God’s will in that state in life which is most suitable to each person, and never excluding the vocation to the consecrated life.
We invite everyone to pray for these young girls, among whom some have expressed their desire to discern their vocation with us, that they will be able to perceive the Lord who is calling them, and be able to follow that call promptly and generously.
