As Catholics, we have grown accustomed to talking about vocations as Church ministries. Really, our vocation is participation in the essential ministry of helping one another to see our lives as a response to God’s call. Baptism is a call to action!
As baptized Christians, we pursue our work, leisure, and everything in between with a commitment to serve God and one another. In marriage, the bride and groom make a permanent, lifelong commitment that will reflect the love of Christ for the Church. In priesthood, a man commits his life to the people of God. A religious sister or brother makes a similar commitment to a religious community.
If you have never thought of yourself as having a vocation, now is the time to redefine yourself as a person whose ministry is a way of life.
