Vocational call is a powerful witness, Pope tells Sunday audience

Catholic World News - June 28, 2010

Young Catholics who heed the call to the priesthood or religious life offer a “living example of the radical response to the divine vocation,” Pope Benedict XVI told his midday audience on Sunday, June 27.

"A person who renounces everything in order to follow Christ enters a new dimension of freedom,” the Pope said. He said that their commitment is a powerful testimony that “God is not some abstract entity, but a reality so great and strong as to fill man's heart to overflowing; a living Person Who is close to us, Who loves us and asks to be loved.”
