The Harvest

“With a burning heart, in conversation with the Lord, perhaps some of you have noticed that Jesus is asking more of you. Dear young people, I would like to tell each one of you: If such a call comes into your heart, do not remain silent. Allow it to mature into genuine vocation. Cooperate with this calling by means of prayer and faithfully fulfilling the commandments. You know well, there is a great need for vocations…of committed lay persons who follow Jesus more closely. ‘The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few. Pray, therefore, to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest’ (Luke 10:12). This is the program that the Church sets before you, young people. May you also pray. And if the fruit of this prayer of the Church should bloom in the depths of your heart, listen to the Teacher who tells you, ‘Follow Me.’ Do not be afraid. Give him, if he asks it of you, your heart and your entire life.” – Blessed John Paul II, May 11, 1982
