World Day Of Prayer For Vocations

Is God inviting you to be a Missionary Sister of the Precious Blood?
As Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood we are called to live the Paschal Mystery and to witness to the redeeming love of Christ. Following Christ in religious life is realized in such manifold ways that no single person or congregation will be able to exhaust all aspects. Yet it is helpful and of great use to the Church that each congregation lives her individual charism and her particular ministries. As Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood we are invited to recognize and to live the Paschal Mystery in our own history, in the circumstances of present-day life, both personal and congregational. It is the painful moments and events in our lives and in our times that demand special attention. The Paschal Mystery will not give us reasons or explanations for grief and suffering, but it offers help and shows up ways to cope with and live through our painful experiences.
Our name is also our mandate: to honour the blood of Christ and to make it fruitful through our apostolate. We honour his blood in celebrating the Eucharist, in prayer and in meditating. We know that it is God who makes the blood of Christ fruitful – not we – but it is up to us to prepare and create favourable conditions for its fruitfulness to unfold its healing power. This is what we contribute. What gifts do you have to contribute?
