Building a Culture of Vocations

“We can help others find happiness by raising the vocational question and by praying for them.”

Reflection by Mike Aquilina

Before the creation of the world, God had a plan for your life. You were created with a purpose. And this is true of everyone in the world. We find our deepest happiness and fulfillment when we go the way God is calling us.

This is why we should pray daily for vocational clarity and vocational fidelity — not only for ourselves, but for everyone. God is calling many to Christian marriage; yet it is a difficult path today. God is calling others to priesthood and religious life. When people pursue their vocational path, they grow happy through the sacrifices it demands. And they make others happy, too.

 God has a plan for you, and you have a calling. This is the most fundamental reality, and yet very few people think of life in these terms. We can help others find happiness by raising the vocational question and by praying for them. With a simple question, we can change the course of lives and the course of history. People are happier when they know that their lives have a divine purpose. To talk about vocations — and pray for them — is to make the world a happier place.
