Office of Vocation
How do I know if my vocation is to the Religious life / Priesthood ?
Look for signs from God! Have you noticed any of the following things taking shape in your life?
Growing faith – A person experiences an increased Awareness of God in his life and a developing appreciation of Jesus, His way of life, His mission, His holy people the Church, His Body and Blood in the holy Eucharist, and His sacraments.
Growing zeal – A person’s developing friendship with Jesus will lead him to desire more and more to share in His mission of saving the world, saving people and saving souls.
Growing Desire to be Consumed – A person’s increasing desire to give himself completely to the Lord.
Growing interest in the Life and work of a Religious / Priest – A person’s growing wonderment at what it would be like to give themselves completely to the Lord and the works of the Lord – being Jesus for others, gathering all people into God’s family, preaching the Word, celebrating the Holy Eucharist and Sacraments, and organising people for service.
Growing desire to lead people – A man exhibiting leadership skills in school, community and church.
Growing sensitivity to the needs of people – A man who enjoys being around people and has a caring attitude toward all.
Growing sense that God has something great plan for you – A man with the sense that there are more important things in life, and that God is calling him to be part of these deeper mysteries.
Almost everyone at some point in his life asks the question: what should I do with my life? Christians often put it in the form: what does God want me to do with my life? What is my vocation? Vocation to Marriage or Vocation to God?
In our world today, suffering strikes rich and poor, religious and irreligious, small and great and, the just and unjust. Virtually everyone experiences sufferings, hungers and thirsts of world. Suffering plagues our world, it affects us physically, psychologically and emotionally crushing our body and spirit.
Man is always fighting his fellowmen, Political ineptitude, corrupt leadership, war and rapid population growth, inefficient farming, building on the farming lands, inadequate transportation in many of the poor villages, ecological calamities, broken relationship, starvation, diseases.
Jesus came proclaiming that his mission was to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed and he did putting an end to the suffering of that time. Today again he looks at the world’s suffering and looks at each one of us. Speaks to us “I m deeply grieved” looking at the world. He needs a hand to join with him he is waiting and longing for someone.
“When a friend desires to prove to his friend that he loves him, he tells him so, and he presses his hand affectionately. When Our Lord wants to show His love for us, He does so in person, discarding the intervention of any third person, whether angelic or human – says St. Peter Julian Eymard
