The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Best vocations video. Ever.

Last year, I had the good fortune to see this video, and someone has finally posted it on YouTube. It’s called “Fishers of Men,” and it’s a stirring and brilliantly produced vocations video from the USCCB. You can order copies of it from Grassroots Films.

Below is part one, which runs about eight minutes…

…and here is part two, running about nine minutes. Watch it. Share it. It’s a stunner.

Thank you . . . thank you – (huh! 60 years old, and here I am crying like a child . . .)- and crying yet again in hope and humble gratitude, as I do every time I encounter this wondrous message from priests about their lives as and unto Christ. And, true to our Lord’s call to ‘Follow Me . . . I will make you fishers of men’. Permit them, Lord, to know that like You they lay down their lives for their and Your beloved.Saint John Paul the Great, great patron of the servant of the servants of God and his ordained servant brothers, pray for vocations to be heard by real men.God bless the USCCB for this marvelous – most superb! – touch on the vocations.
