Commentary on the Gospel of
It is not entirely true and accurate to say, that the decline of vocations to the priesthood and religious life is due to the growing secularism in the world. If we fall short of workers in the Lord’s vineyard, it is also because we have lamentably failed to look for them. This task is given to all members of the believing community. Make the daring proposal to the young people you know. When was the last time you invited someone to consider the priesthood or the religious life? Maybe they are just there, very near to you, waiting for your gentle prodding.
