Vocations Awareness Week

Today we begin National Vocations Awareness Week, which was instituted by the U.S. Bishops in 1976 and is now celebrated annually the first week of November. This year, the beginning of the week falls on All Saints Day—a happy coincidence, because a vocation, in its fullest sense, is our path to heaven and sainthood. Pope Francis reminds us that “a vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the ‘good’ soil of faithful people.”
