015. Living Your Vocation of Holiness

015. Living Your Vocation of Holiness

Did you know that YOU have a vocation – or calling – to be holy! In this episode we explore the profound idea that each of us has a purpose and a mission, and how we can find fulfillment and holiness in the ordinary aspects of our lives. Join us as we dive deep into the concept of finding our true purpose and answering God's call in our lives.

Snippet from the Show

"…the work we do is important to God. And so…it makes sense to ask – what kind of work are we called to do? One of the things I’ve learned in the last three years is that your purpose and your calling to a type of job. It’s not about your career, it’s about what you bring to it. It’s about your soul and how you live your life on the job, interacting with others." - Shelly


"What is a vocation? It is a gift from God, so it comes from God. If it is a gift from God, our concern must be to know God's will. We must enter that path: if God wants, when God wants, how God wants. Never force the door." — St. Gianna Molla

“Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta.

"We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves.

  • Are you called to the consecrated life? Be holy by living out your commitment with joy.
  • Are you married? Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife, as Christ does for the Church.
  • Do you work for a living? Be holy by laboring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters.
  • Are you a parent or grandparent? Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus.
  • Are you in a position of authority? Be holy by working for the common good and renouncing personal gain"

(Gaudete et Exultate, 14). Pope Francis
