Young people in Malawi have been urged to pray fervently in order to discern their calling in a message that was delivered ahead of this year’s World Vocations Sunday to be marked next month.
According to the Diocesan Administrator of Malawi’s Dedza Diocese, it is only through praying that the youth will be able to find what God has called them to do “despite many disturbing voices in their lives.
“Young people in the Church and the country should choose a life of prayer,” Msgr. John Chithonje, said during the launch of the preparations for Vocations Sunday in Malawi.
In a report published Tuesday, March 23 by Agenzia Fides, Msgr. Chithonje added in reference to young people, “It is only through prayer that they will be able to listen attentively where God is calling them to despite many disturbing voices, and be able to choose wisely a life they want to live for the rest of their lives.”
This year’s World Day of Vocations is slated for Sunday, 25 April 2021, to be celebrated under the theme “A call to Service after the example of St. Joseph.”
