Did you hear God call you?


I have no idea what my vocation is. 

I enjoy my work and don't feel called to marriage, but I don't feel called to the Priesthood, either. 

I'm 35 years old. At some point, I have to make a choice :)

Sometimes not making a choice is a choice in itself.

I just finished reading "The Story of a Soul", the autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux. If you have not read it, please do. It will answer your question. In summary, St. Therese says that infusing everything you do, no matter how little, with love for Our Lord, is the best way to give your life to Christ. So, when you wash the dishes, say hello to your neighbour, pet your dog, take out the trash, make PowerPoint slides, have lunch with your colleagues, all of that, should be infused with love for Jesus. Simple dedicate every minute of your life to Our Lord and you'll be fine. Obviously you should pray a lot for help because you cannot be perfect as our Father is perfect, without some heavenly assistance.

How did you choose yours?

I  wish I had a traditional order around the corner where I could attend mass in the morning, compline in the evening, and anything else they had.
