Vocations Sunday

This is somewhat of a rant so I warn you in advance.
We need priests, God is calling men to be priests and the Holy Spirit does not wish the Church to die and the sacraments along with it!
Rant over...
I beg you, please pray for Vocations to the priesthood and the religious life. 'Duc in Altum' as John Paul the great would often say. Sometimes it's not easy to accept that God might be asking you to do something like this. A vocation is a personal call from God. Like the Prophet, we need to respond 'Here I am Lord'.
For more information on Vocations then speak to your parish priest or local vocations director and for more info on vocations which favour the extraordinary rite then please visit to where you will find links to various sites and blogs. But most of all pray, pray, and pray.

Mark, tut tut, such shameless endorsment :P

JP, I'd happily answer the call, but I'm not Catholic yet! I suppose you'll have to add me coming into the Church to your prayers.
