Discerning your vocation

Earlier this week I was looking for vocation awareness material for the CCD program that I co-direct. On chastity.com, a wonderful website and apostolate run by Jason and Crystalina Evert, I came across this great little Q&A article about figuring out what vocation God is calling us to. The article is geared toward the teen age group but there is great information in the answer that pertains to all of us, young and old. Take a few minutes to read it and pass it on to anyone you know that is seeking to find God's will in their life!

Here is a prayer for vocations that I like to say, too:

Prayer for Vocations

Heavenly Father, bless your Church with an abundance of holy and zealous priests, deacons, brothers and sisters.

Give those you have called to the married state and those you have chosen to live as single persons in the world, the special graces that their lives require.

Form us all in the likeness of your Son so that in him, with him and through him we may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully, always and everywhere. With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
