Go Forth / Id y Predicad. Un día que quedará para toda la eternidad; El día de la ordenación sacerdotal en un sacerdote es sólo el inicio de su hermosa misión en su vida y en la de sus seres queridos. Es el día en que se hacen realidad las oraciones de tantos, que como tú, rezarán por las vocaciones este domingo que se conmemora el 50 aniversario de la Jornada Mundial de Oración por las Vocaciones. “Manda obreros a tus mies” Aquí están postrados ante ti y listos para “Id y Predicad”.

A day that will last forever. Ordination day for a priest is just the beginning of his beautiful mission for him and his relatives. It’s the day in which your prayers for vocations are answered. Let’s pray for vocations, together with the church, this Sunday 21st 2013, in which we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

  1. My 9-year old son has felt a call off & on for years. We watched this together twice, and he said, “This makes me want to become a priest even more!” Just thought I’d share that. Thank you!
