教宗方濟各於週日與信眾唸聖母喜樂經,他在講道中說:「問耶穌到底想在你身上作些什麼,鼓起勇氣問祂! 在每個司鐸或獻身的聖召背後,都有人為此熱切祈禱: 祖母、祖父、母親、父親或團體。因此耶穌說: 『莊稼的主人派遣工人,來收衪的莊稼』 (瑪竇福音 9:38)。聖召在祈禱中誕生,只有祈禱才能使聖召持久和結果實。」

From Pope Francis' Regina Caeli address on Sunday: Ask Jesus what he wants from you and be brave! Be brave, ask Him!!! Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life, is always the strong and intense prayer of someone: a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community ... That's why Jesus said, "Pray the Lord of the harvest - that is, God the Father - to send out laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38). The vocations are born in prayer and from prayer, and only in prayer can they persevere and bear fruit.
