VOCATION REFLECTION
In today’s psalm response, we pray “Lord, in your great love, answer me.” The Lord beckons to us, too, inviting us to answer Him out of love. Each of us is chosen; each of us is called. If you think He might be calling you to priesthood or religious life, and if you’d like some company on the way to answering Him, call or write Father Norm Carroll, Diocesan Director of Priestly and Religious Vocations (302-573-3113, vocations@cdow.org). Be sure to visit our website: www.cdow.org/vocations!

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

Marriage Moments: In marriage, there are certain things that you can “agree to disagree” on and others that you absolutely must agree upon. For example, you must agree that your marriage is a top priority and you will do whatever is necessary to strengthen it.

Parenting Pointers: Just feeling grateful should not be the end of the story. Act on it! Make a deal with your child. Each of you thinks of a person that did something you were grateful for and promise to tell the person.
