“Seek the face of the Lord,
and long for Him.
He will bring you His light and His peace.
I have loved you
with an everlasting love,
I have called you
and you are Mine.”
~ Michael Joncas, I Have Loved You
My favorite priest and dear friend, Fr. Don, who is the rector of our Seminary, came to visit my parish this weekend to promote vocations and awareness of the Seminary. In his fabulous homily he spoke about answering the call as finding what it is that God wants for you, not what you want for your self. He spoke about how much he loves his life as a priest and wouldn't consider being anything else because he knows that this is what God wants for him. As he was speaking, I looked at the youth in the parish and it seemed as if their faces were glowing with understanding and hope. You are so right in saying it comes from deep within. By the brilliance and joy that radiates in each word and picture of your blog, it seems apparent to me that you are also living your call from God in a most loving way and that you wouldn't consider doing anything else.
