What is my vocation?
A vocation is ultimately about love. It is a life of love in a concrete, particular form that comes from God. Each vocation begins with His love for us. This love involves first His total gift of Himself to you, and then in response your total gift of self to Him. Are you ready to give yourself to Jesus?
Before making a choice in your vocation you must take a moment to seriously asses your relationship with the Lord. A solid Christian life requires: prayer, hard work, generosity, and sacrifice. These are the keys to hearing God’s call more clearly, and we call this active process Discernment.
Everyone is called to be holy.
“Christ calls us to be holy, to be conformed more closely to His image and likeness. Growth in holiness is a continuous development, nurtured by the Sacraments, personal prayer and spiritual reading. In the words of Pope John Paul II, “The call to holiness is a universal call, valid for all human beings without distinction of age, profession, race or language. Just as all are redeemed, so all are called. The vocation to holiness means putting into practice, in one’s own daily life, the example and teachings of Jesus Christ.”’ USCCB
