Many people nowadays talk about a shortage of priests and dwindling numbers of consecrated men and women. Does this mean that God has stopped calling young men and women to serve him and his Church with the total gift of self? Certainly not.

In this Retreat Guide, on Vocation and the Calling of St. Matthew, we will go back and reflect on what it means for every single one of us to hear and heed the voice of the Lord in our lives:

  • The First Meditation will look at some of Jesus’ teaching about what a vocation really is.
  • The Second Meditation will focus on the calling of St. Matthew and its unforgettable depiction in Caravaggio’s masterpiece baroque painting.
  • The Conference will give some practical guidelines that we can all use to discern our own vocation, or to help others discern theirs.

This Retreat Guide Booklet includes the meditations, conference, and reflection questions, along with space for taking notes and journaling. We hope it helps to further open your heart to Christ.
