What does God want to call you?

“I invite young people not to be afraid to respond

with a complete gift of their own being

to the call that the Lord extends to them

to follow the road of the priesthood or of consecrated life.”

Pope Benedict XVI

First Vespers of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

The Blessed Virgin Mary is called the Mother of God because God called her -- because she is! How about your being called "Father" or "Sister"? Let God call you what He wants!

Father,

Thanks for your posts but I
appreciate particularly when
you include words from the
Pope. Sometimes it easy to
feel cut-off from Rome when
we get so involved in parish
life. Your posts periodically
are reminders that we are a
valuable if small part of
something much larger.
You put a human face on what
too often is seen as another
institution instead of the
Body of Christ.
