Have you been called to a vocation?
When we speak of Christian vocations, we don’t mean a job or a career. A vocation is the way God invites you to love and give yourself to others. It is not simply the giving of your skills, services and expertise, but the giving of your whole self as a path to holiness.
The word vocation comes from the Latin vocare which means to call. God calls or invites you to a particular vocation: single life, marriage, priesthood or consecrated life. On the surface, the vocations of priesthood, religious life, married life, and single life seem quite different; however there is a beautiful diversity among these vocations. At their heart, each shares a common commitment to love. Although each of us must make a decision about our vocation, that choice is a response to an invitation from God.
