Vocations Call

Fr. Chris Martin reminded everyone that when Jesus called His disciples, He then spent time with them. “The first step in following any vocation is friendship with Jesus… Seek holiness. Seek virtue. Continue to grow in intimacy with Jesus and everything else will be revealed.”

Sr. Karoyln (Franciscan Sisters of the Martyr St. George) invited young women to discern the unique way their heart was created to reveal and receive God’s love. “Are you just giving God enough, or are you giving Him everything? Is your heart made to just love [God] enough, or was it made for a different kind of love?”

When it comes to discerning your vocation, remember that you are not alone. The Church is here to journey with you. Talk to a priest, religious sister, or your youth minister. You can also contact your diocesan vocations office. Remember, it is one step at a time, one foot in front of the other, as we allow God to reveal our hearts to us.

How might God be calling you to serve?
