Article in Catholic New York "A Culture of Vocations"

I wrote a Letter to the Editor for the Archdiocese of New York Newspaper, Catholic New York, and my article, "A Culture of Vocations" was chosen to be published in the March 15, 2018 paper; XXXVII. NO. 14. The article is in response to Fr. Christopher Argano's announcement of his new column for vocations that he discusses in "Vocation's Are Everyone's Business" from the previous issue of Catholic New York.

Catholic New York is one of America's largest Catholic newspapers, and I am excited that another piece that I have submitted for publication for the paper has been accepted by them. The piece that I wrote is a positive reflection on creating a culture of vocations and to promote the priesthood and religious life. I hope that young adult Catholic men and women will read this piece from the Letter to the Editors because often articles that focus on the positive aspect of something are overlooked, and instead articles with a negative spin or gossipy edge are shared throughout social media.  

 
Here is an excerpt from my piece:

God is still calling men and women to the priesthood and religious life, but because of a culture that does not promote vocations they are not responding to His call. Father Christopher Argano, in his new column, sums it up when he says, “Most people do not really know what is involved in someone pursuing a call to the priesthood. Even fewer have a good sense of how they can discern, or figure out, whether or not God is calling them to follow Him in the priesthood or religious life.” (CNY, View on Vocations, March 1).
