Catholic Update Guide to Vocations

( 1 )

Overview


A Christian’s first calling is to belong to the People of God—to accept Jesus as Lord, to become a disciple, and to participate in his plan of salvation by giving witness and spreading the Gospel. The Christian’s second vocation is the way he or she lives out the primary one. Many Catholics may think that the term vocation applies only to holy orders and religious life. Yet St. Paul himself gives us a broader notion of vocation or calling. He said that all have been called to fellowship with Jesus, and insisted ...

Overview


A Christian’s first calling is to belong to the People of God—to accept Jesus as Lord, to become a disciple, and to participate in his plan of salvation by giving witness and spreading the Gospel. The Christian’s second vocation is the way he or she lives out the primary one. Many Catholics may think that the term vocation applies only to holy orders and religious life. Yet St. Paul himself gives us a broader notion of vocation or calling. He said that all have been called to fellowship with Jesus, and insisted that Jesus died for all. All people have a vocation, a calling from God, to share in the redemption and eternal life Jesus came to bring. The bishops at the Second Vatican Council repeated in Lumen Gentium Paul’s conviction: “All humanity is called to belong to the new People of God.” The Catholic Update Guide to Vocations reviews the four vocations or states of life in which the Christian faithful live the Gospel: single life, married life, religious life, and holy orders. The laity, whether married or single, are especially responsible for bringing the Gospel into the secular world. The Christian faithful who marry are bound to build up the people of God through the witness of their marriage and the promotion of family life. Clerics have the obligations of pastoral ministry in the Church. Those in consecrated life have the duty to seek perfection by vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, giving witness through lives of charity to others and of praise to God.

    Primary and secondary vocations

    The Catholic Update Guide to Vocations, like others in this series, is based on videos and newsletters published by Franciscan Media. The series is designed to provide the “what, why, and how-to for people in the pews,” and is geared to individuals, catechists, parish ministers, and faith-sharing groups. The vocations book begins with the information that everyone has not one, but two vocations: primary and secondary. The primary vocation of every Christian is to live as a disciple of Jesus. The secondary vocation involves the path through which we live out that discipleship: single life, marriage, Holy Orders, or religious life. This short, pocket-sized book covers discernment and a concise overview of the four areas addressed. In the single life chapter, for example, there are eight myths about single life and a discussion of “widowed, divorced, and separated single life,” and Church tradition regarding singles. The marriage chapter contains seven keys to understanding marriage as developed by a deacon active in marriage preparation ministry. The chapter closes with four threats to marriage in our society as articulated by the U.S. Bishops: contraception, same-sex unions, divorce, and cohabitation. The Holy Orders chapter reminds readers that “all the baptized share in the royal priesthood of Jesus,” then explains the relationship between the priesthood of the faithful and the ministerial or hierarchical priesthood. The religious life chapter discusses the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience and offers a brief history of religious life.
