Elementary:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ​

Remember this past winter when you had a really bad cold or flu – it felt awful!  Then someone came and cared for you and you slowly became healthy again - that was great! Our faith story is like this too.

This past Sunday was Canada Health Day and World Day of Prayer for Vocations. The word "vocation" means "to be called". Part of being a healthy person means that we live to love and care for God and others.  This is God's call for us – to love one another and help each other be the best person we can be.

Today is also the feast of St. Matthias who was chosen and called by the other apostles as the one to replace Judas. St. Matthias became a new member in the family of the followers of Jesus. His call was to continue to tell others of God's love for them.  This is our call too.

Let us pray:

Lord, in our words and actions may we show others that we are listening to your call to be loving people.  May we call others to learn about your love Lord.

In Jesus name we make our prayer.

Amen.

Mary, the Mother of the Church, … [Response: Pray for us.]

St. Matthias … Pray for us.

We continue our day sharing God's calling to us through family, friends and the world in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

High School:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Have you ever felt a little lost about who you are and where your life may go? Maybe even a little lost?

This is normal.

This past Sunday was Canada Health Day and World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Part of being a healthy person means that we live a meaningful life of service for God and others.  This may not be what you wanted to hear.

All of us are called by God to share our gifts in meaningful ways in our world – the word "vocation" comes from the latin "vocare" meaning "to call" or "to be called".  A healthy vocation is not a "job" but it is a way of living – like a musician who makes music not to make money but because it is who they are.  To do otherwise may leave us feeling anxious and frustrated.  When we find our true vocation, we are most happy and content.

God calls us in many ways and for most of us, we'll have to try a few different things to find out what is most meaningful for us in our living.

Today is the feast of St. Matthias who was chosen and called by the other apostles as the one to replace Judas. The disciples and apostles were a new faith family following Jesus.

Let us pray:

Lord, give us a spiritual ears to hear where you are calling us to use our gifts and to share our lives.  Give us companions who are free tell us about the gifts they see in us – and may we fearlessly return the favour.

Give us courage to live out a faithful and meaningful lives that are not linked to simply making money but to doing good for all people and for you Lord.

In Jesus name we make our prayer.

Amen

Mary, the Mother of the Church, … [Response: Pray for us.]

St. Matthias … Pray for us

We continue our day listening for God's calling to us through family, friends and the world in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
