At a time when all the baptized are called to actively engage in the new evangelization, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family offers an enthusiastic look at vocations in its 2011 Message to families, entitled "Families, did you know? Love is calling your children".
Unique and irreplaceable, every child conceived in the womb is called by God to a unique mission. It is in the family, first, that boys and girls learn to know and to trust Him, as they discern their call to love, and, in imitation of Jesus' self‐giving love, to give themselves in marriage, the priesthood, consecrated life or apostolic celibacy.
COLF hopes this new publication will support parents, teachers, pastors and catechists in their important work of education. May it help them to challenge the young, who are so often in search of meaning and ideals!
