Is Christ offering you a calling?
In the Gospel when Jesus asked one man after another to follow him, and each of them had an excuse for not following him right then. This story causes us to wonder if Jesus is offering a special calling to you and me,
Catholics used to believe that a vocation to the priesthood or to the religious life only came in the form of a sensible calling, but that is not the case.
You can tell that God is calling you if you can answer yes to three questions.
First question: do you see the need for someone to perform a good work for God and for our fellow men?
Second question: do you feel that you have the time and the talent for performing that good work?
Third question: would you enjoy doing that good work?
