God calls us each of us by name even before we are born. He loves us so much that He has hopes and dreams for us. He gives each of us gifts to share with the world. This month, as we enter in joyful waiting for the coming of the Holy Child, we are reminded through Mary’s unequivocal “Yes, Lord Yes!” that we all are called to give our lives for the Kingdom in special ways. We share with you a reflection by one young man on his vocation discernment who shared in mission with Columbans through our domestic volunteer program, Columban Volunteers USA.

May we all find the strength and courage to respond to God’s call with the same open heart of Mary as we discern God’s call for us every day. If you feel called to serve in mission, please contact us and we will be happy to walk with you: ccaoprograms@columban.org.

Wishing you and your loved ones every joy and blessing this Christmas.
