Give Up, Take Up, Lift Up!
In his Lenten message for 2014, Pope Francis takes inspiration from the words of St. Paul (Cor 8:9), and asks us to contemplate Paul's invitation to live "a life of evangelical poverty."
We can begin to embrace this call by fasting from or "giving up" material things, including foods, that are superfluous to our basic needs; "taking up" charitable habits that are directed to helping and caring for others; and "lifting up" our brothers and sisters who are in need through giving alms, praying and participating in devotional practices.
"In the poor and outcast we see Christ's face;
by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ."
— Pope Francis,
By taking an active approach to the three traditional pillars of Lenten observance, prayer, fasting and almsgiving, we recognize that to be evangelists, we must first be evangelized ourselves.

Vocation comes from the Latin word voco, vocare meaning "to call." Each person has a calling from God, an indication from God about where they are being led. The Catholic Church identifies three primary vocations: single life, married life, and religious or ordained life. Catholic Campus Ministry offers many different opportunities for vocational discernment including Jeremiah’s Journey. [ More ]
