Molecules… capable of miracles

Tiny are they, smaller than my vision Smaller than your projects, or even dreams Most forgotten than thought of yet they contain miracles in the making. Like drops from a passing rain cloud Like breeze on a dry and sandy desert it keeps coming, powered for miracles soothing and tender, as are noticed. People come…

Don Bosco on Vocations!

​following address was made by Don Bosco to all of his boys on the Feast of Saint Joseph (March 19, 1876) and are recorded in Fr. Arthur Lenti’s Don Bosco: History and Spirit, Volume 5. The harvest is great but the laborers are few! That was Don Bosco’s theme. Is it any less true today? I invite anyone…

What are the signs of a vocation?

The idea that we need special signs usually comes from thinking about the fact that we ought to choose the way of life God wills for us.

Vocation and Ministry

“Each one heard them speaking in his own language” (Acts 2, 6) The concrete guidelines for the pastoral care for vocations do not come only from a correct theology of vocation, but through some operational principles, in which the vocational perspective is the soul and the unifying criterion of all pastoral work.

God Calls… in HIS time…

W H Y   N O W ?!! It is often a wonder why God calls some people at a particular age while others at a different age. Some join lives of commitment when young while others at a later stage. How come!! Is it because some are more matured than the others? Salvation History…
