Who is Called?
“ALL members of the Church are employed as laborers in the vineyard of the Lord … EACH is called by name, to make a special contribution to the coming of the Kingdom of God. NO talent, no matter how small, is to be hidden or left unused.”
Those are the words of Pope Saint John Paul II. And they are the key to our happiness in life. No one is nameless or faceless before God. God doesn’t love crowds. God loves persons — and wants to love them into greatness. The Father loves you as if you are His only child.
God’s plan extends to everyone, regardless of circumstances, talents, or seeming limitations. This is the “universal call to holiness,” and it is what we believe as Catholics. “All the faithful of Christ of whatever rank or status, are called to the fullness of the Christian life and to the perfection of charity.”
