VOCATION VIEW: Oh, that today you would hear His voice! Listening brings faith; faith brings hope. Hope brings trust; trust brings courage to follow the Lord.

Reflection How would you describe your spiritual life? Do you pray regularly or have spiritual practices like meditation? Do you have a regular routine to serve the poor? Does (could) prayer and serving make a difference for your? What is available in your parish in forms of prayer, service or education? We must allow Christ to pervade our souls to the extent that he becomes all in all; we must, according to St. Pauls beautiful expression, put on Christ (Romans 13:14), trying to be what he was, such that we truly become his disciples. The whole of Christian life is this progressive evangelization of our being, this shedding of the flesh, selfish and closed up within ourselves, this opening up to Christs teachings that we must follow. The Christian life consists in allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us gradually into Christ. The unique end of every person is to become another Christ This is not a matter of choice but the sole purpose of existence. (Jean Cardinal Danielou)

(Psalm 95) I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have (2 Timothy 1:8) And the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." (Luke 17:5) When you have done all you have been commanded, say, 'We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.'" Luke 17:10)
