Pope talks about vocations during Sunday’s Angelus

January 16, 2012. (Romereports.com) During Sunday’s Angelus the pope talked about vocations, focusing on the power of  recognizing and following the voice of God.

Benedict XVI

“And so, the call to follow Jesus more closely, to  not form a family, but instead dedicate oneself to the family of the Church, usually comes from the testimony or the suggestion of a spiritual ‘older brother,’ who is often a priest.”

When following the voice of God, the pope  talked about the spiritual role priest and parents have in guiding the youth. He also added that, fully accepting one’s vocation is key in life.

“This response is a total giving of oneself which is demonstrated through the change of Simon’s name to Peter. May we strive to remain open to the Lord’s will for our lives.”

Sunday’s Angelus was celebrated on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The pope prayed for the millions of people who don’t have a place to call home. He also highlighted that migration allows people to promote the New Evangelization.
