A Call to Holiness

I am feeling much better about my trip for one reason. (No, I still haven't bought a coat or stockings.) I have realized that no matter what happens on my trip, I will not have wasted my time and it will not be a disappointment if I do not feel at home. Why? Because my first call in this life is a call to holiness! It is a call that each of us have and it is the first and most important call we answer. We grow in holiness in our vocations whether that be married life, single life, or religious life. So, no matter what happens on this trip or in my vocation discernment altogether, I can't be wasting my time as long as my first priority is to grow in holiness always.

That's my thought for the day. Have a good one.

Your comment about our "first call to holiness" is a reminder to us all, Laura! :)

Our call to holiness is so very important Laura, but most important is our call to love as Jesus loves. Loving will make us holy!

Perhaps you would like to check out our Franciscanized World Blog at http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org to discuss a bit more?!

You are right Laura... the call to holiness is so important. You are going to New York in the the right frame of mind ... I am sure that you will enjoy your time there. God Bless
