Mary, Mother and Model of Vocations

 

Vocation Promotion: Mary, Mother and Model of Vocations

“Every aspect of priestly formation can be referred to Mary, the human being who has responded better than any other to God’s call.  Mary became both the servant and the disciple of the Word to the point of conceiving, in her heart and in her flesh, the Word made man, so as to give him to mankind.  Mary was called to educate the one Eternal Priest, who became docile and subject to her motherly authority.  With her example and intercession the Blessed Virgin keeps vigilant watch over the growth of vocations and priestly life in the Church.”

Pope John Paul II, I Will Give You Shepherds, 1992.
