“Prayer is to our soul what rain is to the soil.
Fertilize the soil ever so richly, it will remain barren unless fed by frequent rains.”
Saint John Marie Vianney
“Wherever there is life, fervour and a desire to bring Christ to others, genuine vocations will arise.”
(Evangelii Gaudium 107) – Pope Francis
“We should never lose faith in God’s power to raise up women and men in every age who are living and courageous witnesses to his love.
Our challenge is to have the courage and the faith to invite those we believe and who may have received that call to come forward and to discern with the Church what the Lord asks of them.”
Cardinal Seán Brady
