God calls all the souls he has created to love him with their whole being, here and thereafter, which means that he calls all of them to holiness, to perfection, to a close following of him and obedience to his will. But he does not ask all souls to show their love by the same works, to climb to heaven by the same ladder, to achieve goodness in the same way. What sort of work, then, must I do? Which is my road to heaven? In what kind of life am I to sanctify myself?
Notes on how to discover your vocation have been written by Fr Stephen Wang and published as a booklet by CTS. They will help you to think and pray about your vocation and become clearer about where God is leading you in your life. Don’t feel you have to read the whole booklet through from start to finish. You can look at the table of contents and dip into whichever sections seem relevant to your life.
