Good Shepherd Sunday & World Day of Prayer for Vocations

Good Shepherd in the Roman Catacomb.
This Good Shepherd Sunday join in this World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

"I Have Chosen You"

The icon " I Have Chosen You " portrays many aspects of discerning a spiritual vocation. The title comes from the words of Jesus in the Gospel of John: "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide"
( 15:16 ).

In the icon, Christ is shown in dialogue with a man and a woman, representatives of all who are invited to serve through ordination or religious life.
