Thank you to everyone who participated in the Rosary for Vocations. We didn't have quite as many people as hoped and didn't cover the full 24 hours but with prayer a few can accomplish great things.

I wanted to pass along this email I received from a reader however. I think it made the effort worth it just getting this message.

Just wanted to let y'all know that we here at St Thomas Aquinas in Charlottesville, VA are participating a bit early--we started our Adoration for Vocations last night at 6 and are ending around 5 (when Mass starts) tonight--we're the prequel, if you will, to your 24-hr Rosary :) (a good bit of those 23 hours were filled by converts--some fresh out of RCIA this year!) I saw your first post on the Rosary for Vocations and took the idea to my parish, but bc having Adoration and Mass at the same time doesn't really work, we had to go a day early. So thank you for the idea!

If with payer a few can accomplish great things - why did you want more?
In my job I have been awake and attendant for more than 24hrs on a great number of occasions. Did God abandon support of your quest?

Well the goal wasn't to have anyone stay up for 24 hours. It was to have multiple people praying at different times to cover the entire 24 hours. It didn't quite work out that way, but I don't see that as a failure of the effort and definitely not a sign that God's abandonment.
