Called Today – Be true to your Vocation


Called Today – Be true to your Vocation

"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Howard Thurman

Being true to our deepest, God given, life-giving yearnings…. This is vocation, becoming alive.

We have really only one vocation in life… we are all called to become saints – all of us; every single one of us, no exceptions. There is no special place where we become holy. Monasteries are not more sacred than our kitchen. There is no one profession or only one path in life that leads to holiness. It happens everywhere, and for each us it happens right where we are. Holiness is a gift from God. We don’t have to look for it, but we do have to receive it… and then we have to live it.
