'A Calling from God'

From the very beginning, when He created you, God has been calling you, calling you to know him, love him, and serve him in a special and unique way that only you can. This is your mission. This is your Vocation. This is your path to happiness, love, fulfillment, success, and heaven. The word “vocation” means “to be called”. God created us and calls each one of us to be holy, to be His adopted children, to be servants and love to others, and to ultimately be with Him in Heaven for all eternity. However, while these are universal calls to every person, God has created each one of us with a multitude of different gifts and talents that has an enormous potential to be fulfilled within the context of a particular lifestyle. The four possible vocational lifestyles that God places before us are: Ordained life, religious life, married life, or single life.
