Called and Chosen: A Retreat Guide on Vocation and the Calling of St. Matthew
Presented by Fr. John Bartunek, LC, SThD
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?
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.
The Personal Questionnaire/Group discussion questions are available in the Companion Guide Book or Small Group Companion Guide. Either download the PDF Companion Guide Book or purchase it. The Companion Guide Book is available for purchase in Kindle or Paperback from Amazon. Pause the video at any moment to go to the Companion Guide Book or continue to the next meditation.
