What is the best vocation for you? What is God’s plan for your happiness and holiness? The best is the one He has for you, just keep your heart and mind open. From the time we learn to pray it is good to ask God, “What do you want me to be, Lord?” Patiently wait for His direction while you keep busy with daily life.
Vocations to Consecrated Religious Life are a gift to the whole Church. Jesus calls a person to follow Him in a unique way by the sacred vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. This is a work of the Holy Spirit; yet, there is a great need for our cooperation also. God knows why He calls someone; and He calls each by name. (Isaiah 43:1) He knows His plan, and it is always a good plan.
Pray for vocations, pray to know your vocation and to follow it. Pray for vocations especially in your own family, in your parish, and support those whom Jesus may be personally inviting: “Come, follow Me.”
VOCATION: The calling or destiny we have in this life and hereafter. God has created the human person to love and serve him; the fulfillment of this vocation is eternal happiness. Christ calls the faithful to the perfection of holiness. The vocation of the laity consists in seeking the Kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and directing them according to God’s will. Priestly and religious vocations are dedicated to the service of the Church as the universal sacrament of salvation. Catechism of the Catholic Church, Glossary
