Following Morning Prayer and Mass with the group, we had a chance to visit with Bruno, who asked how vocation promotion was going. We explained that although we do some things collaboratively, each Congregation has their own vocation promoter, so there is not any consistency across the board.
Bruno then began his, "I have a dream" speech, sharing his hopes that one day nuns, sisters and friars will all work on vocations together for each other. What if the friars who served in campus ministry encouraged women to join the various apostolic or cloistered communities? What if the nuns, who often learn of interest of vocations through the internet could help send men and women to appropriate places for discernment? What if sisters encouraged young men and women to consider all forms of Dominican religious life?
Bruno Cadore has a dream -- and so do we -- how do we make it a reality?
