God Wants You! Discovering Your Vocation

God Wants You! Discovering Your Vocation

April 23, 2011

A kid is being bullied in the hallway at school … someone is getting teased for a stutter … a close friend of yours is being mocked because of a new haircut. Do you join in on the bullying or teasing, or do you speak up and stand up for your brothers and sisters in need? What would Jesus do? What does our Catholic Christian faith tell us to do for the voiceless and the downcast?

 

Many of us find a place of creativity in ourselves. We play instruments, sing, or write music. Even if we aren’t artistic geniuses, many of us have written a poem or two, created stories, drawn or painted. How can we take these creative gifts and talents to create works and stories that reflect the beauty of God? How can we do this in a way that may not even necessarily be outwardly religious? How can we lift the spirits of others by sharing with them some aspect of the presence of God in our midst?

As followers of Christ we are called to be peacemakers. But how do we make peace in a world that sometimes seems like it is full of violence and hate? On the news we witness wars and violence. Even in our schools and communities we witness fights, disagreements and actions that are not working toward peace, but toward unrest. So, is peace something we can ever find? In such a big world of people who don’t agree, can peace ever be something we reach?

 

Diana von Glahn, host of the EWTN television series , The Faithful Traveler shares about the many beliefs we hold about Mary, the mother of God and why she is so revered in our Catholic faith. Diana also shares how she finds strength in her devotion to Mary, especially in meditating on the sorrows Mary experienced in witnessing the Passion of her son.

 

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. This line from the prayer that Jesus taught us, the Our Father is at the heart of Christianity. As Christians we are called to show mercy. Spotlight guest Priscilla LaPorte had a difficult time to rediscover mercy in her life when her brother was killed in the Virginia Tech Shooting.

Inspired by Jesus’ act of mercy to save the world, Priscilla shared how choosing mercy over hate and anger has helped her to get through the difficult times she faces because of her brother’s death.

 

We can learn a lot from our pets. Our pets can be cute, funny, cuddly or full of energy. Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird or hamster, they fill our homes, lives and families with life and love. In many ways they unconditional way of loving us imitate the way that God loves us.

 

How we can discern our calling, and discover the vocation God has intended for us. How can discernment, a spiritual process using prayer and meditation help us determine God’s will for us in choosing the right vocation and career path? Special guest Paul Houlis, who is a seminarian/transitional deacon shares how he discovered his own vocation as a Catholic priest.
