Spotlight on vocations - Vatican Connections

February 6, 2017
On the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple, the Church also marked the World Day of Consecrated Life with Mass in Saint Peter's basilica. In his homily, Pope Francis encouraged those present to rekindle "what originally set their hearts afire" to answer God's call, which he came back to when meeting with a group of men and women religious, who were participating in a plenary session on fidelity to one's vocation. And we spoke to Vatican correspondent, Deborah Castellano Lubov, about the preparatory document for the Synod on Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment.
