What did you do for National Vocation Awareness Week?
From Most Rev. Daniel E. Thomas, Bishop of Toledo, OH:
"You are my inheritance, O Lord"! How appropriate to close National Vocations Awareness Week with Sunday Mass and a visit with our Visitation Sisters! In every way, their cloistered lives show us how the Lord alone is their inheritance, and they encourage us to place the Lord first in our lives! In praying for vocations, don't forget to pray for vocations to the hidden consecrated life, especially to our Visitation Monastery right here in the Diocese of Toledo! Always a great joy to offer Mass and have a parlor visit with the Sisters! "God be Praised"!
