Are you being called to something more?
This is the provocative
question asked to those who visit the new vocations website
from the Legion of Christ, www.legionvocation.org.
According to Fr. Daren
Weisbrod LC, National Vocation Director for the Legion of Christ,
Sunday, May 11 is the World Day of Prayer for
Vocations. Incidentally, the date is also Mother’s Day.
“The Church and
the Legion of Christ are asking the members of our
movement to honor our Blessed Mother this Mother’s Day by
requesting her intercession that God will send more laborers into
the vineyard,” he said.

The Legion is also making a new
prayer card available to help promote priestly vocations. Click here to see it.
“The prayer card is an invitation
to all families to pray and sacrifice for vocations,” said
Fr. Daren. “We ask all families to gather in prayer
for vocations every Friday to commemorate the day of the
Sacred Heart, the one who inspires all hearts to come
and follow Him.”
“Please spread the word throughout your localities!” he
“Prayer for vocations is a way that everyone can join
together to ask God to grant many holy priests and
consecrated men and women for the Church," said Michelle Reiff,
National Vocation Director for the Regnum Christi consecrated women. "It
is very powerful - since March we have been praying
a prayer for vocations every day in our formation center
in Greenville, Rhode Island, and the number of inquiries about
our vocation has increased dramatically.
The Legion of Christ has
developed two new brochures with information about their apostolic schools in
the United States and the Novitiate in Cheshire, Connecticut. Fr.
Daren said the brochures were put together with the help
of around 20 Legionaries “who had in mind the clear
transmission of our identity and life.”
“They are inspired by the
results of our recent general chapter, and we believe they
are not just paper brochures, but an expression of who
we are and where we are going,” he said.
