Saturday morning movie: Vocation

There is a move afoot to reclaim the words "discernment" and "vocation."   These terms have become primarily associated with ordained ministry, and yet all people have a vocation.  At our baptism, we are commissioned for ministry.  The priesthood is only one kind of ministry; the ministry of the baptised, the priesthood of all people - this is for everyone.  And everyone has a vocation, everyone has a ministry, which may change over time.  We are called by God to use the gifts God has given us for the betterment of the world, for loving our neighbors.  And so each of us needs to discern his or her vocation.  (Sometimes a priest helps us do that.  Sometimes others help.  It's a great idea to get help!)  

Frederick Buechner says that "The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet."  We are called to do what we are passionate about.

So today's movie is about vocation in terms of everyone's calling.  Take a look.
