God takes 'first step' in every religious vocation, Pope says

February 13, 2012

God is “the One Who takes the ‘first step’” in any vocation to priesthood or the religious life, writes Pope Benedict XVI in his message for the annual Day of Prayer for Vocations. “Every specific vocation is in fact born of the initiative of God; it is a gift of the Love of God!” the Pope writes. “We need to open our lives to this love,” he says. The 49th annual Day of Prayer for Vocations will be observed on Sunday, April 29. The Vatican released the papal message, entitled “Vocations, the Gift of the Love of God,” on February 13.
