What is a Vocation?
Vocations: Marriage, Ordained (Priesthood, Diaconate), Consecrated Life, and Single Life
At Baptism we “put on Christ” and the flame of faith is entrusted to us. Each of us has a vocation - a call - that comes from our Baptism. We are called to the mission of Jesus, to live the values and the message He taught. The Gift of the Spirit we received at Baptism sends us to proclaim the Good News and to do good works. God’s word comes to each of us: “You are my beloved daughter. My favor rests on you!”This call is a grace and a gift. Each person’s vocation - marriage, religious life, holy orders, single life – is a call to community, to holiness, and to the service of others. No vocation is “better” or “holier” than the others. Jesus says that He came so that all "might have life and have it abundantly" (John 10:10). Which lifestyle will lead you to that abundant life?
