God gives us freedom.  It is a freedom to choose to believe or not to believe in Him and His Son.  If we choose to believe in Jesus we will be choosing truth, beauty and goodness.  Fed by the Body and Blood of the One who gives us this freedom we will be able to go out to love and serve all the people we come into contact with each day.

Vocation View
Whom the Lord loves, He disciplines.
The best way to lead others through the narrow gate is to be formed and disciplined as a leader.
Then you can go through the narrow gate, yourself.

Prayer for Vocations
O God, who has chosen the Apostles to propagate the faith & to establish Your Holy Church throughout the world, we earnestly beseech You to choose from amongst our people many priests, deacons, religious brothers & sisters and lay persons who will gladly devote their entire lives in making you known & loved by all.  Through the intercession of our Blessed Lady, we ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen

A newlywed couple is getting ready for bed when an argument arises over who should get up first to put the coffee on.  After a few minutes, the wife says, “You know, it’s in the Bible that the man should make coffee.”  “Oh really,” he replies.  “Well , if you can prove it to me, then I will make the coffee.”  “ There is a whole book about it,” she tells him.  “It’s called Hebrews.”
