Opportunity to make a difference
People want happiness, fulfilment, a sense of achievement and an opportunity to make a difference in whatever direction they choose to travel in life. Some find this fulfilment, as a nurse, teacher, doctor, housewife, carpenter, shopkeeper, farmer, social worker, bus driver or other such occupations.
However some of the most worthwhile, powerful, challenging and meaningful of all vocations are those of the priesthood, religious, consecrated or missionary life.
Have an open mind
So when you pose the question to yourself “what will I do”?, have an open mind. Committing yourself to the Lord’s service, you leave behind a lot in this world, but with the Lord you stand to gain everything.
“Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God” Psalm 143
Respond in prayer
If you hear the call in your heart do not shut it out. Respond to it in prayer, especially prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Let the call in your heart develop into a vocation, a vocation for Christ.
“I will not reject anyone who comes to Me”
