Christian Calling

A Franciscan Monk just gave a talk to a bunch of 16 year olds about Christian vocation.  He said some interesting things about how God doesn’t just call people to The Church but to their own vocation – whatever that may be.

Find the place where you are most happy and then die to yourself there.

  1. Yeah, it’ s funny how people (not just kids) think that God is not quite omnipresent enough to work outside of the church.

    I was appointed in the past as a worker in youth vocations. The powers that be wanted to see ‘more young people offereing for the priesthood’. We saw it was empowering young people to take their place in God’s Kingdom – wherever he was calling them.

    Just a subtle difference but an important one!!
