vocations crucifix

Our parish has an official vocations crucifix that is made of wood. It's touched to a first class relic of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and comes in its own litle reliquiary. Each week a different family takes it home and prays especially for priests, seminarians and anyone who is mulling over a vocation to the religious life.

This week it sits in a place of honor in my living room. Our new parochial vicar, Fr. Smeagal handed it to Rocky after Mass and blessed us both. I think it's going to be a special week.

This sounds wonderful. I would like to start something liek this in my parish. Any advice?

Oh, that's beautiful, D! Enjoy it, and I do hope it is a fruitful week for you and your beloved Rocky.

Walter, I'd talk to your pastor and see if he's agreeable. Also, Epriest.com has got some great ideas on starting a vocatiosn basket which is very much like the vocations crucifix idea.

Thanks Kit!
