Another day, another quote from Pope Francis
IN A MESSAGE DIRECTED TO G8 LEADERS meeting in Northern Ireland this week, Pope Francis wrote, "Every economic and political theory or action must set about providing each inhabitant of the planet with the minimum wherewithal to live in dignity and freedom, with the possibility of supporting a family, educating children, praising God, and developing one's own human potential. This is the main thing; in the absence of such a vision, all economic activity is meaningless"."
God sees great things in you!

VISION is Rio bound!
DISCERNERS, YOUTH MINISTERS, PILGRIMS OF ALL STRIPES: If you are going to be in RIO for WORLD YOUTH DAY this July, please find us on the Vocation Veranda in the English-speaking Pavillion at the Vivo Rio venue in Rio's Centro district. We will have fun give aways, music, and sunshine! But most of all VISION and the National Religious Vocation Conference will provide you with an opportunity to meet other seekers like yourselves and talk with sisters, brothers, and priests about your faith and where God might be calling you.
If you can't be there, follow us on Facebook or twitter @VisionVocation as we give you real-time updates. Please look to the USCCB's twitter site for Rio updates as well @wydusa.
We are very happy to have the opportunity to participate in this faith-filled event, particularly as Pope Francis's attendance will mark his first return to South America since his election as Pope.
Other co-sponsors of the English-speaking pavilion include:
· United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
· Knights of Columbus
· Holy Cross Family Ministries
· National Religious Vocation Conference/VISION Vocation Network
· Pontifical Mission Society
· Jesuit Conference
· Canadian Salt and Light TV
· Office of Vocation of England and Wales
· World Library Publications
· Oregon Catholic Press
· Busted Halo/Paulist Media Ministries
2013 WYD Theme: "Go and make disciples of all nations!" --Matthew 28:19.
