VOCATIONS SUNDAY

In his first Pastoral Letter addressed to us, Bishop Patrick wrote:

“I have chosen as my Episcopal motto: ‘Seek the face of Christ.’  It will remind me that, if we are to be faithful to our calling from the Lord ‘to make disciples of all the nations’ (cf Mt 28:19), we must first get to know Christ Jesus personally as our Saviour, through time spent before him in adoration and prayer.  Only then, in the power of the Holy Spirit, will we know his support in sharing joyfully our faith with others.  Christ invites us first to become his disciples, listening to him in prayer and allowing ourselves to be guided by his teaching in the Scriptures, so that he may then send us out as his Spirit-filled missionaries, who seek his face in those we meet – especially those searching for meaning in their lives, and those who may feel very distant from the Lord.”
