Four New Priests Join Pope for Regina Coeli Blessing

‘Listen, Discern, Live the Call of the Lord.’ 

Pope Francis reminded the crowds of Pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square for the Regina Coeli on April 22, 2018, that it is the fourth Sunday of Easter — and the Day of Prayer for Vocations:

“The theme is: ‘Listen, Discern, Live the Call of the Lord.’ I thank the Lord because He continues to arouse in the Church stories of love for Jesus Christ, to the praise of His glory and at the service of brothers. Today, in particular, we thank Him for the new priests I ordained a short while ago in St. Peter’s Basilica.  And we ask the Lord to send many good laborers to work in His field, as well as multiply the vocations to the consecrated life and to Christian marriage. As I was saying, today I ordained sixteen priests. Of these sixteen, four came here to greet you and to give the Blessing with me.”
