Charles de Foucauld hits the nail on the head!


February 3, and today’s reading from A Maryknoll Book of Inspiration is titled A Calling, from Charles de Foucauld: Essential Writings.

I quote the final paragraph:

‘There can never be any question of choosing a vocation: the word ‘choice’ is excluded by the word ‘vocation,’ which means ‘calling,’ a call from God.  Therefore we do not ‘choose a vocation’ but seek to find our vocation, to do all we can to hear the divine Voice calling us, to make sure what he is saying – and then to obey him. Where vocation is concerned God speaks, calls, commands: we have not to choose but to listen and obey.’
