    ministries has really inspired me to consider a vocation to religious life. I think that these experiences have actually inspired me to go into psychiatry, have a family and respond to God’s call that way. Although it’s not the traditional vocation to religious life, I feel that it is the best course of action for me and would still allow for me to spread God’s kingdom and serve others. I think that as long as we’re doing good and being kind, everyone’s response to God’s call is equally important. Many of the experiences that I’ve had involved families that really cared for and loved one another. A lot of times their love was incredibly moving. By just being in a room with some of these families, I could feel the immense amount of love they had for each other. For me, these are the experiences that really reflected God’s love and inspired me to respond to His call in a more family-based way. Although, I have asked myself about a vocation to religious life, I don’t think it’s something I would be able to do. I think the greatest challenge for me in regards to a vocation to religious life is not being able to have a family. I am someone who, for better or worse, gets emotional attached very easily and because of that strong urge to connect with others on such a deep level, I don’t think I’d be able to give up having a family, which I feel is the ultimate emotional connection. However, I do believe people who have a religious vocation have an incredibly deep and amazing…

    • 4 Pages

    A person’s vocation is not necessarily the same as their career path. Whatever ones vocation may be, it is certainly shaped by one or more events throughout their life. I truly believe that the love I feel for helping others, coupled with the trials and tribulations I’ve dealt with in a past relationship have helped steer me towards a vocation that I can fulfill wholeheartedly. I am currently taking advantage of several volunteer opportunities at my church. I am learning to become a youth…

    If you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, many are so confident of what they want to be. My son will tell you that he wants to be an archeologist and my daughter a doctor. They seem to not be limited by the world around them telling them any different. Even when they are told by their peers that they will never be a doctor or archeologist. We all know however that life throws it’s owns wrenches into the mix. They may not be what they dreamed of as a child but hopefully what…

    Mentoring Into Vocation

    • 573 Words
    • 3 Pages

    In his book, Mentoring Into Vocation, Dr. Fowler delineates that the role and relationship between a mentor and a mentee is “sacred and transformational.” (p. 12) It does not matter whether a relationship is based off of secularism or otherwise. This relationship and the journey is supposed to be relational and practical in nature. (p.32) The transformative journey of mentoring does not involve “control” by a mentor. (p. 63) I concur with this perception because the metaphorical understanding…

    Vocation is a calling in life, a purpose to what you’re meant to do in life. I believe that vocation can consist of many different experiences that form your calling in life. For me, there has never been just one experience that has formed my vocation. My vocation always continues to expand with all the different experiences I’ve gone through my life so far; I bet that as the years go by and I get older, my vocation will keep growing. I see that the purpose of having a vocation is to be happy,…

    This vocation must be kind-hearted, accepting, loving, patient, understanding, and much more. There are many ways a teacher can be virtuous that is not only teaching well. In Titus 2:7-8 it says “ In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.” To be virtuous in the church vocation, one must first have…

    1. Business as a “Calling” or “Vocation” According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a vocation is defined as “the work that a person does or should be doing”. The first part of the definition (“the work that a person does”) can simply be viewed as the definition of an ordinary job; however, the work that a person should be doing differentiates the term. An individual who chooses his/her vocation feels as though there is a higher purpose and deeper meaning to a particular job. The “should…

    I felt inspired to try, and find the Central-Southern Province’s Vocation Director’s email. So, I sent him an email, and the next day he responded, and told me he was going to forward my email to Fr. Drew, the Vocation Coordinator. My journey to where I am today, was starting to materialize. After months of emailing Fr. Drew, I attended a Come and See event where I could see new novices enter, and novices take their first vows. That was tremendous experience, and I felt so near to God, when I…

    After reading the article “Teaching as a Vocation” by Duane Huber, I can see how the teaching profession has changed, yet remained the same, since this article was written. I am able to completely understand the basic concept behind the article, but I don’t feel that the power struggle between teachers and administration that the author speaks of is as intense as what is described. The author also speaks of the ‘vulnerability’ of teachers, which is another concept that I don’t quite agree with.…
