Moreover, in this life a person often enters into indissoluble bonds which God desires to see respected after the fact. The implication of the question is, what is your career? For someone who has chosen the consecrated life, their path of following Christ is through their vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. If this were the case, God, who is infinitely good, would make His will known to every man in a way which could not be misunderstood. There is no paved main road to take us where were supposed to be no path set in stone carved with our name. God gives each one of us a particular mission in life. I have had to learn that one does not always choose one’s vocation. 1 the activity by which one regularly makes a living Synonyms calling, employment, game, lay, line, profession, trade, occupation, work Related Words call, lifework ; business, enterprise, field, livelihood, living, métier also metier, racket slang; assignment, engagement, gig, mission ; art, craft, handicraft, handicraft ; appointment, berth, billet, office, place, position, post, situation ; duty, function, job, load, task, workload Near Antonyms’ avocation, hobby, pursuit In the simplest terms, “vocation” means a “call.” It is their duty also to discover the germ of a vocation, and develop it by forming the character and encouraging the generosity of the will. To accomplish the designs of God we are called upon to do all the good that we are capable and all that we have the opportunity of doing; and the greater the good, the more special our capability, the more extraordinary the opportunity, so much the more clearly will reason enlightened by faith tell us that God wishes us to accomplish that good. Bernard, “De præcepto et dispensation”, i P.L., CLXXXII, 862. this content
The ‘Blue Lives Matter’ law officially goes into effect today and Louisiana is the first state to put this kind of law in place. The law makes it a hate crime to target police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel. Under the new law anyone convicted of committing a felony hate crime could face five years in prison or a maximum five thousand dollar fine. Traditionally, a crime is considered a hate crime if the victim is targeted because of identity-based characteristics such as their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation. Louisiana becomes the first state to add one’s chosen vocation to that list and it hits home for the Shreveport Police Department. Last August, officer ThomasLavalley was shot and killed on duty after responding to a suspicious person call. His accused killer, GroverCannon is in jail awaiting trial.
