Vocation Station

Jen links to Vocation Station, a wonderful vocations blog which has collected a great assortment of vocation videos and links to other resources for those discerning the call to religious life. Some of the videos seem to have been produced by the various orders, others to be products of secular media. For example, there was a great video about the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist that was produced by Canadian television.

As Jen said, what a great idea for a blog. I pray it bears much fruit.

O God, Who wish all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of Your truth: send, we beg You, laborers into Your harvest, and grant them grace to speak Your word with all boldness; so that Your word may spread and be glorified, and all nations may know You, the only God, and Him Whom You have sent, Jesus Christ Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns world without end. Amen.

    Is Bella kissing Sophia? That is so cute… There’s nothing that warms my heart like the sight of my children being sweet with each other – a spontaneous hug, a kind word spoken without mamma’s encouragement… Children are so precious!

    Hi, I wasn’t sure how to email you, so I will just leave this message under your comments section.  I read about your cancer scare last year and was glad to find out that it ended happily.  But, I need you to please PRAY for me.  My children are 4,3,18 months and I’m 12 wks pregnant.  I am to be scheduled for a thyroid biopsy this week or next for suspicious cancer.  Please pray that it is benign.  I can’t imagine leaving my children behind on this earth without me.  I am in deep, deep fear and anguish.  Please pray hard for me!

    “Is Bella kissing Sophia?”

    Yes. Bella loves kissing her sister. It melts my heart every time she does it.

    Amy, I’m reposting your request in a new post so everyone can see it. Please feel free to email me any time, just click on my name at the bottom of any entry to get my address.

    To Amy Shattell:  I found a giant lump on my thyroid when I was pregnant with baby #4.  It was removed when the baby was six months old and found to be benign.  The good news about thyroid cancer, IF you indeed have cancer, which you probably don’t (some people are just lumpy) is that it is a very slow-moving cancer.  My surgeon said that some people wait YEARS to get it removed, just for convenience.  It is VERY rare for people to die of thyroid cancer – it’s so easy to treat.  We will pray for you!
