In “Song of the Sparrows” Father Murray Bodo, O.F.M. talks about his vows and the significance they make to him as a Franciscan Friar. While Father says that his vows should be a commitment to grow into a new in Christ I believe that as children of God we are all called to grow into new persons in Christ. While priests may be called to this commitment to manifest itself in a more profound way we are each called to transform ourselves to be like Christ. Vows or no vows it is every person’s fundamental call to grow in the Lord. God Bless.
