“Your life is not an endless series of open doors!
Listen to your heart!
Do not stay on the surface but go to the heart of things!
And when the time is right, have the courage to decide!
The Lord is waiting for you to put your freedom in his good hands.”
— Pope John Paul II, upon the canonization of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
VOCATION AWARENESS WEEK: TIME TO LISTEN TO GOD’S CALL!
On this feast of the Baptism of the Lord we begin National Vocation Awareness Week (January 9-15, 2011). Renew your baptismal commitment as you consider your call to serve God in your particular vocation. You may be called to serve the world and the body of Christ through marriage, the single life, the diaconate, priesthood, or consecrated life.
