Called and Chosen:
A Retreat Guide on Vocation & the Calling of St. Matthew
Editor’s Note: Tomorrow is the feast of St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist. We can prepare for that by watching Fr. John Bartunek’s retreat guide on vocation and the calling of St. Matthew, introduced to us in this post today. This guide is available as a video, audio, or as a PDF companion guide.
Many people nowadays talk about a shortage of priests and dwindling numbers of consecrated men and women.
Does this mean that God has stopped calling young men and women to serve him and his Church with the total gift of self?
In this Retreat Guide on Vocation and the Calling of St. Matthew, we will go back and reflect on what it means for every single one of us to hear and heed the voice of the Lord in our lives:
- The First Meditation will look at some of Jesus’ teaching about what a vocation really is.
- The Second Meditation will focus on the calling of St. Matthew and its unforgettable depiction in Caravaggio’s masterpiece baroque painting.
- The Conference will give some practical guidelines that we can all use to discern our own vocation, or to help others discern theirs.
May God bless you and keep you!
