The vocation of a Catholic is to be a leaven on earth, a light to the world, an image of Christ, nothing less than a son of God! Vocation does not mean only being a priest, a monk, a sister or a nun. As all men and women are called to be united with the Mystical Body of Christ, which is the Church, so we are all called to the perfection of life in Christ, and of charity towards God and towards men. This is what God calls us to. This is what a "Catholic vocation" is. We must bear this in mind when we seek to promote any particular kind of vocation, whether to priesthood, marriage, or religious life, apostolate in the world, contemplative life in a monastery, or whatever.
