In keeping with the upcoming Special Year of Prayer for Vocations and having finished looking at Dei Verbum, the Second Vatican Council document on Divine Revelation, it may be fitting to look at the Council’s document in relation to the ministry of the priesthood.
Let us all pray for vocations and let us pray that the Easter season will be a time that we can see who Christ is for all of us and recognise ways of opening up our understanding of the faith to address the problems that our world faces every single day. Let us pray that we can bring the joy of the Good News to a world that sees so much pain and suffering. May we see the suffering of Christ on the Cross in any suffering we encounter personally or in the people we live with and we meet. May we see the light of Christ shine through those difficult times and fill us with the hope that comes from his resurrection.
